Celebrating baptisms

We are baptised as a first step of faith - an outward declaration of our faith, and a step of obedience to Jesus.

We were delighted to baptise Lizzie, Josh, Adrian, Laura, Pauline and Kimberley. Each of them spoke of a life changed by God. Hear their stories and watch them get baptised below.

Welcoming new members

As a church we believe in membership: as a declaration of belonging to our Christian community and of supporting our values and mission.

We were delighted to welcome Mike, Rachel, Josh, Jonny, Roshan, Rachel (yes, there were two!), Tim and Nick into membership on Sunday 18th June, 2018.

Hear why they wanted to become members of Emmanuel Church.

Before we moved into The Durham Centre in March 2009, the building was an empty shell. Before we started converting it, we held a Foundations Day, where we painted scriptures, prayers and prophetic words onto the floor - right under the carpet where we now meet for our Sunday morning meetings!

To celebrate what God has done in the decade since, here's a reminder of that day, back in 2008.
