It has been a weekend of celebration at Emmanuel Church as it commemorates 60 years on the current site. Adam describes the earlier history of the church in this month’s Rector Writes section of the website.
The celebrations began on Saturday with afternoon tea hosted by the Ladies’ Guild. It was wonderful to see so many people in the church enjoying the sandwiches and cakes on offer and sharing memories of Emmanuel Church over the last 60 years. The sum of £482 was raised.
The following day, Pentecost Sunday, the congregations of Emmanuel and Hope gathered together in Emmanuel for a special service at which Bishop Gregory preached and celebrated Holy Communion.
