Emmanuel Methodist Church - Barnsley
a better way to live life !
Hello . . . . and welcome to Emmanuel Methodist Church.
My name is Cameron Stirk. I am the Minister at Emmanuel. I am a Yorkshire man by birth, and this will be my third appointment having served in Liverpool (my eldest son is a scouser!) and then York for the last 10 years. I am married to Lucy and have three sons - Aidan, Callum and Ronan. I am passionate about food (!), music and God.
Rachel Marsden looks after the pre-school children's work (up to the age of 5)
Kirstie Hall, looks after the children, teenagers and young adults.
We are part of the Emmanuel Leadership Team made up from ordinary members of our church and, with the wider church, we all seek to serve the Lord Jesus in our generation and in this area.
We are a local church situated to the north-west of Barnsley town centre in South Yorkshire, England.
As Christians we meet every Sunday (and also in the week) to worship God and to celebrate the amazing new life that the risen Jesus Christ offers everyone. We believe God is interested in every person's life and wants to reveal His love for each individual as we grow in our relationship with Him.
Emmanuel is a lively welcoming Church, open to people like you.
Together we seek to help each other learn about the Christian faith.
We have another page on this website that provides an introduction to Christianity, but let me just share further about Emmanuel, Barnsley…
We also seek to make a positive difference in the world with ongoing local and overseas community projects. We challenge injustice and want to be a loving neighbour to people in need. We seek to care for every person and the world itself.
We believe confidently in the power of the Good News of Jesus Christ, which brings transformation and real hope to people’s lives.
In these days where Churches often seem to struggle, we invite you to come and experience a church that is seeking to grow and equip people to be Christians in their own place where they find themselves. Why not come along and 'try' Emmanuel for yourself? We are a Church that is lively, geared for all ages and has something to offer to any and every person. We would love to welcome you.
