January 2016 Update

Dear Immanuel Church Family and Friends,

We continue our series on “Reclaiming The Ground” on Sunday – we have had a lot of positive feedback on the series so far:

Week 1: “Reclaiming The Ground – Spiritually” Ephesians 6:10-18

  • Stand Still – Be Captivated
  • Stand Firm – Be Confident
  • Stand Together – Be Committed

Week 2: “Reclaiming The Ground – Physically” Joshua 6

  • Family Service – we marched around the Chapel as we thought about the Battle Of Jericho
  • Living life against the odds

Week 3: “Reclaiming The Ground – Emotionally” : Matthew 16:15-20 and 1 Peter 5:6-11

  • Flying with the wild goose – lessons from Celtic Christianity
  • Holding the Keys
  • Healing the hurts

Week 4: “Reclaiming The Ground – Mentally” Romans 12:1-12

  • Dismantle Strongholds
  • Upload Truth
  • Think Differently

Week 5: “Reclaiming The Ground – Geographically”

Don’t miss out!

We are keeping our services a little shorter – especially in the cold weather – please come and “claim the ground” of the Chapel with us.


We are encouraging the whole church to feedback to us what God is saying about a 3 yr strategy for Immanuel Church. We want everybody to be part of this discernment process. If you have any thoughts, Bible verses, prophetic words, insights – into where God is leading us as a church – and practical ideas on how we should be fulfilling the vision God has given – please let us know.

Richard and Jill are collating all feedback – using this email: strategy@immanuelchichester.com

Please take part in the process – so we can hear from God together and move forward with a common vision and purpose.

The Trustees have fixed the Church Annual General Meeting for Monday 21st March at Fordwater School – 7.00 for 7.30pm – please make this date a priority
