Apart from Sunday services there is nearly always something happening on the church premises throughout the week. Here are the regular bookings as they stand at the moment:
In addition to the regular groups that meet at Immanuel , there are also a lot of ‘casual / ad hoc bookings’ of the premises, so if you are planning to do anything at the church, it is advisable to check the link below…….. it may save you a wasted journey, as the room you want may be booked and in use!
Visit of the SW Synod Moderator, Ruth Whitehead.
Unable to be with us at the start of the year to mark the stone-laying of Immanuel in 1939, Ruth has kindly agreed to lead the morning service for us on Sunday 3rd November. Try to join us for worship that morning if you can.
Sunday 10th November : 10.30 am: as always we will join with those gathered at the cenotaph in London in our act of remembrance. Our evening service at 6.30 will be a time to remember those who have died over the past year of so and whose funeral services have been taken by Robert or Geoff, as well as those associated with the Immanuel fellowship but who are no longer with us .
