Emmanuel Café Church (Term-time only)

Emmanuel Café Church is the Sunday worship community at the Chaplaincy. Our worship is focused around discussion, reflection and ritual.

We are a Christian community that is open and inclusive of all, but unified in a desire to grow in faith by being more open to God, more open to one another and more open to the world.

We meet 1st Sunday and 3rd Sunday of the month during term time from 5pm. The 1st Sundays are Café Church Connect, which is an inclusive contemporary worship service open to all. The 3rd Sundays are Café Church Original, where we create, discuss and reflect. You’re welcome to just come along and join in, or get in touch with us and we can arrange for one of our regulars to meet you beforehand.

Café Church has been meeting for over 10 years. We try to keep a record of what we do week by week on our blog – it’s a great place to get more of a sense of what we’re like. Why not have a look?

Sundays 5-7pm on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of the month (term-time) with Rev. Samantha Sheehan.
