Sundays at 10:30 am in the Sanctuary
Prayer is powerful — that’s why we call our weekly prayer meeting “Powerhouse.” In this time of prayer for each other and our church, community, and city, we not only express our faith in God, but also participate in his work in our world!
Praying corporately as a church increases our faith and the effectiveness of our prayers. As we commit to praying unceasingly as a church family, God responds by powerfully shaping both our hearts and circumstances.
Sundays at 11:00 am in the Sanctuary
Every Sunday, we meet together as a diverse church family in our English service.
Through singing, praying, sharing testimonies, hearing Bible-based teaching, serving one another, and sharing meals together — we encounter and worship God, encourage each other in our faith, and express our love for one another. God made us for community, so consistently coming together each week enables us to develop relationships and disciple one another, all to glorify God.
Our doors are always open to you. You do not have to look a certain way, come from a certain background, or have a certain lifestyle to walk through the doors of our church. All are welcome — you are welcome!
Sundays at 11:00 am starting in the Sanctuary
Here at Emmanuel, we love and welcome kids to our church!
We believe that every child is uniquely made in the image of God and is able to have a relationship with him. So, we partner with parents of our church and community so that their children can know Jesus as their own Lord and Saviour, be discipled in the word of God, and become integrated and active members of our church family.
We serve children ages 18 months to 15 years of age. Each Sunday, we all start off together in the sanctuary for our English service, and then split into smaller groups during the sermon — Arnaki (nursery to lower primary) and Aslan (upper primary) — to study the Bible and enjoy various games and activities together.

Here at Emmanuel, our small groups exist to develop disciples of Jesus.
Our goal is to grow each other in our conviction of truth, our character expressed in obedience, and our competence in service to others. We do so in practicing Christian community, facilitating the understanding and application of God’s word, and encouraging each other through word and deed.
These small groups meet throughout the week across Kowloon and the New Territories, in English, Cantonese, or both! While some are intergenerational, others are geared towards new graduates, working professionals, families with young children, and mature adults and retirees.

Mission and Evangelism
We believe that God placed us in our community for a purpose, so we are committed to loving and serving our neighbourhood through our outreach initiatives.
Our church building is located in To Kwa Wan, an area with many asylum seekers and refugees, mainly from Africa but also from the Middle East and South Asia. We love these neighbours and seek to serve them both practically and spiritually. Our initiatives currently include Homework Club, Summer Club, and Home Care.
Emmanuel Medical Mission
The medical mission provides affordable medical services to our community near and far. Services include general practice, dental, and a Chinese practitioner specialising in cancer. For appointments, please visit emmanuelclinic.com.
Skeptics and spiritual seekers welcome!
We invite those who do not consider themselves Christian, are skeptical about religion or are seeking spirituality to come and explore Christianity with us in a safe space. We do so through a seven-session course called “Christianity Explored.” This course is offered in both English and Cantonese.
We start off with an introductory session over a shared meal to meet each other and chat about the course. If you choose to commit to the rest of the sessions, we will meet weekly to watch a short film, share what we think together, and look into the source material of this faith — the Bible — as we learn about the life of the man at the centre of Christianity.
