Emmanuel Church Canterbury


We welcome people of all ages to Emmanuel Church. On an average Sunday morning, you might just as easily be sat next to a retired couple, a twenty-something student or a six year-old, and we think that's a great thing!

We believe that the good news about Jesus is for everyone, from the youngest to the oldest. So everyone is welcome!

During the morning service the first part of the service is all-age. We usually have a childrens song and a short children’s talk. After that, the children leave the main service to go to their Sunday school groups (run by fully DBS checked church volunteers). We run a Creche for under 2’s, Bubbles for pre-schoolers, Treasure Hunters for children in reception – yr2 and Transformers for yr3-yr6. There is also a quiet room with sound relay available for parents who would rather stay with their children throughout the service. But don't worry about noisy children – we're more than happy to have them with us!

We also regularly hold social events, book groups, prayer breakfasts and guest events for men and women specifically.
