Reachout

Have you ever felt prompted to pray for your neighbours?

And somehow that's led to getting to know them, becoming friends. But then how do we start to talk about Jesus when they don't have any framework to think about faith?

And how do we keep going when we are often the only Christian in the room - which means we don't get any feedback or other ideas on how to give a different perspective.

So we're starting a group to encourage people like us, where we can share our experience of being the only Christian in the room and get ideas from each other and pray/support/train each other. Everyone is welcome. Whatever your experience of reaching out to people who don't know Jesus, come and share it! Let's encourage each other to step out and see Jesus change peoples hearts and minds.

The idea is that these meetings will run regularly - roughly once a quarter - so that we can continue to grow and see Jesus teach us how to become fishers of men. For more details contact chrisdone123@gmail.com

Burn 24-7 Durham: August happenings

The Burn 24-7 Durham invite you to an evening of encounter with Jesus, of encouragement and impartation to reach the world with His love.

With us will be Jamie Dickson, leader of a church plant in Maine, USA and one of the Burn 24-7 Global leadership team. Jamie carries a massive grace for street outreach flowing out of the place of extended worship and prayer. 

For the last ten years Jamie has led a Burn 24-7 mission team into the largest Halloween Witch festival in the world... in Salem, Massachusetts. Sixty hours of continuous worship and prayer is the springboard that launches them into the city to offer prayer and prophetic ministry and they see **amazing** numbers of healing and salvations.

In the UK for the last few years a similar model has been followed at the Edinburgh fringe festival and Jamie and team will be with us the day following this outreach with fresh testimonies and encouragement from the streets of Scotland.

If you have a heart to see the Lord’s releasing miracles and salvation into our broken land why not join us for a couple of free hours on a summer Sunday evening. It’s going to be amazing.

Gift Day

Gift Day

In previous Gift Days we have linked the offering to one or more specific projects.

Marc Dupont challenged us to ‘reap in our own field’, the local church, and see the growth that God brings.   

This Gift Day we are not asking people to give into any particular project, but asking that we look at the bigger picture of the future of Emmanuel Church, and give in faith looking to God to give the increase.

Giving is a step of faith, trusting God for the future.  It is exciting to see what the Holy Spirit is doing among us, but we long for more. 

On Sunday 24th June, let us celebrate all that God has given us, and give, reaching into the future God has planned for us.  There are great days in store for Emmanuel Church.

June Burn - Worship in Sanctuary 21

June Burn - Worship in Sanctuary 21

From the Burn Durham team...

We were so encouraged and privileged to be part of Thy Kingdom Come earlier in the month. So good to be a gathered people, seeking the Lord in prayer, praise and worship. Oh, how we need to seek His beautiful face… because there's so much more to see.

So we're going to do just that on the evening of Friday 8th June, and grateful to be being hosted again by Sanctuary 21.

We’re taking five hours out, to pour out our hearts and love towards Father, Son and Spirit, led by some of the great worship leaders and musicians He has raised up among us. We’ll be overflowing in intercession, and crying out for revival… and a few of us will take the fire to the streets while it’s happening: we’ll see what the Lord wants to do among those He loves but don’t yet know Him.

We love the timing because next week there's some big student led community outreach happening. “The June Project” and “God Loves” are backed by Kings and Emmanuel churches, and it’s going to be great to help prepare the ground in prayer.

Hope you can join us... for five hours... or five minutes... God's going to be amazing!

As a church, we want to support our people to attend Fusion 2018. We are offering adults up to £50 off the entry cost - and children and young people will be wholly funded. For more information, email: finance@emmanuel.org.uk

We are also encouraging people to serve at Fusion, which gets you money off the cost too.

The church will be taking a large van to the event to help with transporting camping gear etc. If you want to put items in the van, please bring them to The Durham Centre car park on Tuesday 22nd May, between 7pm and 9pm. We are suggesting a minimum donation of £10 towards the cost. Gas bottles may not be placed in the van. For more information, email Keith Mallard.

And once we're there, we'll have the blessing of a marquee, where we can gather to share community and food together. Cooking will not be allowed in the marquee, but it will be carpeted, so children can play. It will also protect us from adverse weather, should it come!

We are really looking forward to spending time together as a church family, enjoying each others company, encountering the Lord and hearing what He wants to say to us. If you have any questions or would like to hear more then please speak to Keith Mallard or one of the other Elders
