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.

In the new year, we are taking a closer look at Jesus' life as told in the book of Matthew. Over 12 weeks until Easter, we will examine how Jesus lived until his death and the hope that this brings us today. We are calling this series Hope is Here.

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.

From the Pit to the Palace: The story of Joseph and the Sovereignty of God

Rejected, Betrayed, Sold, Shackled, Slandered…. Surely this man was an enemy of God? But no. He was God’s favourite, and loaded with destiny. Tracing his story - from promise, through burial, to high office - we learn the sometimes silent ways of God in our own lives.

Starts 16 April

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.
