    Thought for the Day

    I expect to pass through life but once.

    If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.

    (William Penn)


    Prayer for Today


    Lord God I pray that you will keep me ever mindful that kindness is a wonderful expression of love and a wonderful example of Christianity in action.


    Daily remind us of your famous words “even as you do it to one of these the least of my brethren, you do it unto me”


    I pray that I may never pass by on the other side.    Amen


    Rev David Kent



    Following the governments announcement that places of worship can re-open for public worship from 4th July (if they feel it is safe to do so), the Parochial Church Councils of The Emmanuel Benefice have consulted with the Rector and they have passed a resolution to remain closed throughout July.  We will review the situation during the month and will post any developments on our website: theemmanuelteam.org.uk


    We are sorry if you have come to church today to pray.  We realise that these are difficult times and you may be looking for somewhere to be quiet with God and we hope you will find somewhere to do that.  If you would like someone to pray with you please contact Julie our Rector who would be very pleased to pray with you over the phone or in her garden.

    We will do our very best to open the church as soon as we feel it is safe so please see our website for any updates and to find details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, and support. 

    Julie Anderson is the Rector of this church and can be contacted by telephoning 01484 962184 or emailing julie_anderson51@yahoo.co.uk

    “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” 


    We still need to protect the vulnerable amongst us, so please only leave your home for essential trips and stay alert.
