Thanks for stopping by. We hope you can visit us sometime soon.
Everyone is special, wonderfully unique. God made each person that way. On the other hand, none of us here is perfect.
Here at Immanuel Church everyone is welcome as they are; unique, wonderful …and imperfect.
We are confident about the future and would love you to come and see what God is doing with our little church where everyone matters.
God’s plans on earth have always centred on Him being with groups of people, living with Him as their God. And that is what we are doing.
We invite you to our Sunday meeting and look forward to welcoming you.
Revd Ben Redding
"I came that they may have life and have it abundantly."
- Jesus Christ (John 10:10)
Samuel is an exciting Book in the Bible. It's split into two parts due to its large size.
In 1 Samuel we'll hear realistic depictions of real people in history. Each one has their own strengths, weaknesses, and goals just like we do.
Recurring themes of pride and humility run through the chapters, starting with Hannah's story in Chapters 1-2. In Chapter 2, she sings a song about God opposing the proud and giving grace to the humble. Their story reminds us of humility and trusting God with our own lives.
God is at work not only in victory but also in defeat, throughout the book. His plans are accomplished despite human weakness and sinfulness. The supreme example of this is the cross of Christ. The world thought it was defeating God by nailing his Son Jesus to a Roman cross, yet in that moment God was accomplishing his greatest victory
