sunday school

At Emmanuel we believe that growth and transformation happen best when we are part of a small relational group of fellow believers who learn and do life together. We didn't invent the idea, we just borrowed it from Jesus and have seen the effect it has had. When you visit you will find a thriving Sunday School ministry with a wide range of topical focuses.
