Following the Government announcement around the ability to open Churches, we wanted to let everyone know that we are awaiting guidance from the Methodist Church nationally, and Emmanuel Church building will continue to stay closed at this current time. Therefore, we will not be opening our building for any form of worship this week but we will, of course, let you know as soon as we can meet together again very soon.

However, please join the online Zoom service on Sunday (details below)


We want to bring our Church back to life. To show that we have been alive and kicking throughout lockdown. Building links with each other. With the community. And with God.

How it works:

1. Get yourself a stone – any size

2. Get yourself some materials to decorate – felt pens, paint, material – anything!

3. Decorate it – with patterns, prayers, names, message – whatever you feel is right

4. Take it to church

We want to lay the stones starting at the entrance to the car park and weaving its way all the way around the Church – can we make it?

If you want to join in but can’t get it to Church, get in touch with your pastoral contact and we will arrange collection – we want everyone to be able to join in.

Ask your friends and family to join in too – we want anyone who is connected in any way to the church family to feel part of bringing us back to life. There will be a sign up from Monday for those passing by to join in too. We hope you will join us!


For our service this Sunday, we will be joining with the rest of the Barnsley Circuit for the Circuit Service, which will be a Zoom service beginning at 10:00am.
