The team: Communications Team


At Emmanuel we do so many amazing things and want to ensure we both shout about them, and ensure people know about them so they can join us. Our communication's team is the team who ensure our website is up to date, our social media shares our stories and engages the local community to ensure people know about what's going on and how they can get involved.


They are a committed team - who work together to get our news out there. They take the strain together to respond to enquiries and share the load for publishing content monthly.
