With Sunday worship at the heart of its life, Immanuel is a lively, thriving church, normally open seven days a week and offering a wide range of activities. Obviously the covid pandemic has taken its toll over the past months and for the immediate future our week-day cycle of clubs and activities will be more limited.
We like to think we are a welcoming church but you’d need to come along and meet us to find that out! We are always keen to see new faces – so why not join us one Sunday morning ? We’d love to see you.
Since 1969 Immanuel has been in an ecumenical partnership in Old Town, Swindon, with Christ Church (Church of England) and Bath Road (Methodist) making us arguably the oldest partnership of its kind in the country. Although we worship in three separate buildings we recognise each other’s ministries and try to work as closely together as we can.
We are also in a joint pastorate with Highworth United Reformed Church and share in the ministry of Revd Robert Jordan M.A.
Two other churches use our premises on a regular basis: The Romanian Pentecostal Church has met at Immanuel for some years both on a Sunday for services, as well as for mid-week prayer sessions. More recently a local group of Nepalese have chosen to hire one of our rooms for their own worship on a Sunday afternoon. We are delighted to be able to welcome these friends into our buildings.
