Sundays at Emmanuel
After a year of exciting (!) online and hybrid services, we are moving back to having one Sunday service in person. There will be either a livestream or a recording of the service.
Our morning all age gathering is in Northstowe Secondary College
. We start at 10:30am and recommend you arrive a few minutes before that to allow for finding the venue, using your NHS App or signing in, and finding your seat. We are now singing indoors so our service will be in the main hall throughout. We begin our service with about 30 minutes of all age time in the main hall, including prayer, singing and all age Bible teaching. After that, Primary School children go to their Bible Clubs (and a creche is available). Adults and teens hear a talk explaining the Bible passage for the day. After the service, you can stay and chat to people in the outside spaces, and we will be serving water.
Our Summer series will be on the theme: "Growing in Jesus' grace and truth" which is one of our church values
25th July and 8th August will be all age family services for about 45-50 minutes, with no Bible clubs, but activity sheets for children for the final part of the service:
15th August will be a "Visit another church Sunday" so don't come to Northstowe Secondary College. If you're not away on holiday, why not visit one of the other local churches, or perhaps visit friends in a Cambridge church.
If you are coming in person to a service, please be aware of our Covid guidance in place and follow the stewards' instructions. This means
We require you:
-To sit where the steward directs you with households distanced from other households, to reduce risk of infection or being "pinged" by the NHS app.
-To stay at home if you have a positive covid test, recent onset of the most important Coronavirs symptoms, or have been asked to isolate by NHS test and trace:
a new continuous cough
a high temperature
a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste (anosmia)
We strongly advise:
- signing in or using the NHS app when you arrive
- using hand sanitiser on entering the building and before and after using shared objects
- wearing a mask during singing
- that social distancing be observed when moving about inside the building, that conversations while no seated remain short, and that you assume people would like to observe social distancing unless they say otherwise
We leave it personal choice:
- whether you wear a mask or not (except during singing when we strongly advise it)
If you are watching our services in LiveStream or on YouTube and want to get in touch, we'd love to hear from you here
