Get in Touch
If you would like us to be in touch for whatever reason please use the "Contact Us" form and we will be in touch. At present this will be by telephone but we hope we will be able to meet you in person once Government guidelines permit.
Once direct face-to-face contact is allowed again, if you are new and would just like to know a bit more about our church ("EMC") why not come along to our coffee shop one morning and look around? If you would like to meet a minister to learn more about EMC just fill in the "Contact Us form", or if you would like to subscribe to our newsletter complete the "Newsletter Request" form.
Where and When we meet on a Sunday
When not restricted by lockdown, we meet at the Church Building (details below) for our Sunday services starting at 9am, 10.30am 2pm or 5.45pm. You can read about the different types of service are here. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early. Our small car park can get very busy, so if you are able, please do give yourself time to park in one of the local car parks and then come along and find a seat before the service begins. (For details of car parking at EMC and nearby please see the "Car Parking" page). When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team who will be wearing a Welcome lanyard.
We serve tea, coffee and biscuits after the 10.30am service. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free. There is an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.
Plan your journey:
Open Google Maps
Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There are accessible toilets in the main foyer.
With Government guidelines recommending everyone stays at home we are not opening the church for services at present. Instead we are live streaming the service at 10am every Sunday morning and this can be viewed live by subscribing to our weekly newsletter and following the link provided or by viewing the service on YouTube (generally available by 4pm on that Sunday). For more information see our Sunday Services
page of this website.
What about my kids?
At present we have a 15 minute online programme specifically for kids which is released every Sunday. More details here
When not under lockdown or social distancing restrictions we have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages. To see further details please visit our Junior Church page. Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. At the end of the notices someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their various groups. You will need to go with your children to their groups and register them as part of our child safety policy. Whilst you are dropping your kids off at their groups, we pause to take time to chat to someone sitting near or next to us, giving folk a chance to come back before the sermon begins.
The kids group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, bible stories, testimonies, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games and free play. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.
While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
