Emmanuel Methodist Church is situated to the north-west of Barnsley town centre, about half a mile from the town centre. 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 all ages. Together we seek to help each other learn about the Christian faith. In a typical week at Emmanuel we provide a varied programme for new and mature Christians as well as people who are exploring Christianity for the first time. Worship, bible study, prayer, mutual support and care are regarded as central features of our church life. We host a range of activities for children, young people and families.

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 also have a desire and a responsibility to share the message of the Bible and encourage others to become followers of Jesus Christ. Our building is modern and spacious and hosts many community groups as well as many Concerts.
