Welcome to Emmanuel

We are so glad you're here! We'd love to help you in whatever step you are in your discovery of Jesus.

We are one church in four different locations across Brighton, Hove and Shoreham, with services happening in-person each Sunday. If you are unable to join us in person, you can join us live online on Sundays.

There’s so many ways for you to get plugged into community here. More information below.


Emmanuel Live

Join us on Sundays at 10:00 for our live digital church service. Just like a normal Sunday service, we will have prayer, worship, a talk, and some news about church life. You can tune in and watch with your family, plus it’s a great opportunity to share the link with friends who don’t normally go to church.

The service will be streamed live on our YouTube channel, at 10am.

All previous online services and talks can be viewed in our media section by clicking here.

Virtual Jesus: Who is the real Jesus?

Is Jesus a relic of the past, a killjoy, a self-help guru or even toxic? Why do millions of people around the world follow this man?

Join us as we journey into the heart of John's Gospel and unravel the profound 'I Am' sayings of Jesus. This series isn't just another lecture; it's an invitation to encounter the core of Christ's identity and an opportunity to connect with the Son of God personally.

In these ten weeks, we'll unveil the intriguing nuances of Jesus' self-revelation, shedding light on his roles as the Shepherd, the Resurrection, the Way, and so much more. Whether you're sceptical, seeking answers, or intrigued, come and experience Jesus in his own words – a God who bridges the gap between divinity and humanity, offering solace, purpose, and a transformative encounter that speaks to the depths of your heart.

These life-changing truths transcend time and speak to the essence of your existence.

Alpha Course

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to ask life's big questions. What is my purpose? What happens when I die? Why is there suffering?

Alpha is a chance to ask these questions and explore the Christian faith, in a fun no pressure environment. Each session includes a short film and discussion where you can share your thoughts and questions with a small group of people just like you.

Your generosity helps to build the church and help people find their way back to God.

In the Bible, God has shown himself to be a giving God. He is both faithful to His people and overwhelmingly generous; not stopping short of giving His own Son (John 3:16). Because He has been so lavish with us, we live to reflect our Father in the way that we give.

Bible Every Day

Now more than ever, we need to find peace during this disruptive time. We believe that Jesus is the best solution to our anxiety. And one of the clearest ways of discovering and knowing more of Jesus is through the Bible.

Reading the Bible is not always easy, but we’ve found that, like in all of life, doing it in community is best. Join with us as we read the Bible together every day.

The aim of this reading plan is to help you spend time with Jesus every day, rather than overburden you with too much reading to keep up with. Therefore, we’ve designed our reading plan to be scalable, depending on the amount of time you have available.
