Emmanuel is primarily here to serve people who live within walking distance of the church, but please don’t let that put you off if you live further afield – everyone is welcome! If you do live near-by, then you will probably know where the church is anyway. If not you can use the map above or any of the information below.

20 is Plenty

There are 2 and 4 hour visitor bays along parts of Desborough and Cherbourg Roads. These can be a little congested around school and college opening hours in term time (See Hampshire School Holidays for details). Parking is currently unrestricted after 8pm, on Sundays and on Bank Holidays. Please observe the 20mph speed limit as there are schools near the church and school age children around the church much of the time.
