Emmanuel Church Football Club

We have a weekly football kickabout, at Riverside sports complex, Chester-le-Street, on Thursdays from 8:00pm to 9:00pm.

Emmanuel Church Cycling Club

If you fancy getting fitter, enjoying the fresh air around Durham or just want an excuse to wear lycra, then Emmanuel Church Cycling and Adventure Club may be for you.
Coached by Glenn Jones, we ride each Saturday, mostly avoiding roads, on a mixture of trails and railway tracks and some tougher terrain.
For more information, see Glenn Jones or visit the club's Facebook page.


We host a stretching and core strength development class at The Durham Centre on Mondays, from 7:00pm to 8:00pm. The class is low-impact, open to all and led by Glenn Jones. Participants should take a towel.

Coffee and Chat

We hold a regular Coffee and Chat morning, at The Durham Centre on Fridays, about once a month. These times are open to all and are a great chance to come along and meet new people, or bring a friend.
