Welcome to the Emmanuel Fellowship Church
What does the Bible mean to me?

What does the Bible mean to me? It’s the greatest book ever written and defines, in every sense, who I am as a Christian.


Prayer has helped me to find peace.

Becoming a Christian

Becoming a Christian has changed my life so much for the better, so that now I follow in God’s footsteps and worry about nothing.

The Crises of Life

My faith has helped me to cope with the crises of life.


For me loneliness is now a thing of the past.

We work closely with other local churches.

At the Emmanuel Fellowship, we are committed to the Great Commission, Matt 28:19,20, by which people may be brought to faith in Christ, led to discipleship and equipped by the Holy Spirit to minister to all within and outside of the Church. We are also committed to each other as part of the Family of God

Our BeliefOur Leadership Team

Our Belief

We Believe:

  • In the Bible as the inspired Word of God and its authority in all matters of faith, conduct, preaching, prophecy, prayer and exercise of all other spiritual gifts.
  • In the triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Creator of heaven and earth and all mankind.
  • In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the supreme Head of the Church.
  • In the fall of man and consequence of the eternal separation from God.
  • In a personal redemption from this fallen state, to eternal life, through the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross on our behalf.
  • In the Bodily resurrection of Christ.
  • In the personal and visible return physically of Jesus Christ as Lord.
  • That the Church only consists of that Body of believers who have truly repented of their sin, accepted Jesus as their Lord and Saviour and publicly confessed acceptance of him as their sovereign Lord.
  • In the need for the continual indwelling of the Holy Spirit, who baptises and empowers the effective Christian life and service
  • In the baptism in water by total immersion on public confession of our faith in Jesus Christ
  • That all the gifts of the Holy Spirit , expressed in 1 Corinthians 12: 8-10, are for the Church today
  • In the celebration of the Lord’s Supper as corporate act of Communion in obedience to His command, Luke 22:19.
