Emmanuel Church

Emmanual Church is part of the Central Area of the Shropshire and Marches Methodist Circuit and is a Local Ecumenical Partnership (LEP) with the Church of England. For information about service times, view the preaching plans on the Service Times page. Information about Methodist ministers can be found on the Our Team page.

Moves to plant a church in this area were first made by the Church of the Holy Spirit in 1992 when a group from this church met in the Radio Shropshire building.

In the years that followed the Methodist Circuit decided to join them in this mission forming an LEP. Having closed churches in places where they were not needed it seemed right to plant one where there was a clear need and where the cost could be shared by the Anglican parish. By much hard work and sacrificial giving on the part of many individuals as well as generous grants and loans from bodies who shared our vision the building has now been paid for.  This would not have been possible if God had not been with us. In spite of some ups and downs we have seen a steady growth since the building was opened, numbers around 40 attending morning worship.

In addition to Sunday Worship:

The church is open for Tea & Toast on Monday mornings from 8.45.

Memory Lane is a group which meets on the last Wednesday of each month from 10am. All are welcome to come along and enjoy a drink and friendly chat.

Big Chill is a social space for young people in Year 5 and above, held alternate Saturday Evenings.

Messy church is held on the 3rd Sunday of the month at 3pm.

Quiet evenings are held throughout the year.

For further details on any of the events, please contact the church office on 01743 350907.

The church can also be hired for meetings and events.
