Photograph Competition

Comments Off on Photograph Competition

Photograph Competition

As a community worker based at Emmanuel Church in Weston Favell Centre. I am lucky enough to be able to walk around Northampton East. I am amazed by the amount of beauty that surrounds us and it got me thinking, why can’t we run a photography competition to celebrate it.

We hope it will help people see what there is in the community where we live.

Some of the local councillors have helped support this event, and we managed to raise enough money to have a first prize of £40 voucher and a second prize of £20 voucher

The competition will be advertised to a wider audience as well. We have three age categories to give out prizes for

Ages 0 – 11, 11 – 18 and 18 – 100+!!

It will be split into two photography categories – Nature/Wildlife and Urban/Buildings

The competition will run from 4th to 30th June.

Email your picture to competition@emmanuelgroup.org.uk

Or send via our facebook page @TheEmmanuelGroupOfChurches

with a description about the photo, your name, age and contact details

Many thanks

Inspiring Women! Fellowship, Refreshments, Prayer, Praise and the Word 7-9.30pm Saturday 9th June

Comments Off on Inspiring Women! Fellowship, Refreshments, Prayer, Praise and the Word 7-9.30pm Saturday 9th June

On 24th March, 2018, Inspiring Women! held its first Conference. This was a great success and women who attended gave positive feedback stating they were greatly touched by the Lord and blessed by the gathering, speakers and ministry.

Inspiring Women plan to meet every 3-4 months with two main conferences per year.

The next event on 9th June, ‘Fellowship, Refreshments, Prayer, Praise and The Word’ will be an informal gathering which is free and is designed for you to network and fellowship with other women, hear testimonies and a short word. It is also a place whereby you can bring women who do not yet know the Lord. The evening will provide an opportunity to receive prayer ministry.

The event is free, however, if you wish to give to contribute towards the costs of the refreshments there will be an opportunity.


It would be really helpful to know numbers so PLEASE REGISTER ONLINE or email to newlifejoyce@aol.com, with your details (your name and the names of those you are bringing/coming with)
