Virtual Church


Welcome to Virtual Church!  Thank you for visiting – please do look around the rest of our website while you’re here.

These are unusual times and we look forward to being able to gather together again soon in the normal way; and if you are new to Emmanuel, we look forward to welcoming you in person.  Until then, you will find links below to all the resources you should need to enjoy church at home, along with the rest of the church family.  You will also find study questions for use during the week, either on your own or with your family or home group (now meeting remotely).

News and information will be posted here, so please check-in on a regular basis.  You can also keep in touch via the Emmanuel Church Hastings Facebook page or email our church administrator at

Family Support Work

Due to the coronavirus restrictions, the Robsack Centre is now closed and Jude Harrison is working from home to help families in need.  Under current conditions, she advises that the best way to continue to support that work is by sending money donations, to enable the team to buy exactly what is needed by the families they support and deliver it to them.  If anyone would like to do this, the address for cheques is c/o Finance, Garton House, 22 Stanford Avenue, Brighton, BN1 6AA, payable to “Chichester Diocesan Association for Family Support Work” (or “CDAFSW”).  Alternatively, online payments can be made to sort code 201275, account number 40257133, reference “Emmanuel Hastings”. If you are able to give in this way, please would you let Head Office know that you are a member of Emmanuel Hastings so that the money can be allocated to the Hastings area.  This could be done in a cover letter (for cheques) or by email to (for online giving).
