Current church building

Emmanuel Church Leftwich is a community of ordinary people whose lives have been changed by the good news of Jesus Christ. We believe the Bible is God’s word to us today and seek to learn from it and live by it. Our desire is to reach others with the same good news.

We aim to show the love of Jesus to our local community by serving you through activities that cater for all age ranges.

At the moment, the services we provide to the community include:

  • Jolly Tots - Parent & Toddler Group
  • Tuesday Evening Youth Group
  • Senior Moments - Variety of group events for the elderly
  • Seven - Kid’s club for primary school children
  • Holiday Club - Primary school children
  • Family Events - Games on the Green, BBQs, Family fun days

The church as a community is growing, and as our numbers have increased, so has our desire to serve the people of Leftwich even more. We believe our new church building will give us the opportunity to do just that.

Proposed new church building

We are excited to announce that we will be moving ahead with applying for planning permission to build a brand new church and community facility next to the care home on Leftwich.

Having been on the current site since 1976 we have well established links within the community through the various activities and events and believe that it is now time to move to bigger premises to allow us to serve the locality better:

  • A large hall for church activities and also available for community use & private hire 1
  • A café area with Wi-Fi and plans to be open to the public soon 2
  • Crèche and safe outdoor play area for toddlers Modern commercial kitchen with server
  • Food Bank
  • Designated off-road parking
  • Access to green space for “Games on the Green”
  • Marked court areas around the site
  • Plans for Debt Advice Centre
  • Space available for activities such as Scouts / Beavers / Brownies / Zumba / Keep fit / Slimming club / Education
  • Classes for adults and children

1 Subject to availability, terms and conditions.

2 Subject to any planning constraints that may apply.

A WORD FROM OUR PASTOR

 I'm very excited to see the plans for this new building coming together. It's my hope that it will be a blessing to people across the age range - from toddlers to children and young people to pensioners - by creating a focal point for our community. It will be a pleasant, safe environment, providing somewhere to meet and something to do. Our vision is that this new venue will be available for community hire, provide practical support and enable us as a church to continue and improve our current activities. As a governor at Leftwich Primary School I was invited to share these plans with the children in Year 6, as part of their writing project. It was wonderful to see their enthusiastic response through their comments and letters. I'm encouraged to believe this response will be reflected across our community and that these new facilities will help make a very positive contribution to life in Leftwich.
