If you are in the area, we hope that you will come by and visit us! We are located at the corner of Elm and West Main in Norwich.
At Emmanuel we work to try and "respect the dignity of every human being", following what Jesus taught in loving God and loving one another. I hope you'll take a moment and email me your comments and let me know if you will be visiting us or if you would like to get together for a chat. May all of our paths, indeed, our whole Earth, be illumined by the light of God in Christ!
The Very Rev. Charles G. Taylor

An important part of our spiritual growth is embodied in the principle of stewardship. Through stewardship, we thank God for all his blessings by returning to him a portion of the time, service, and the financial resources given to us. I ask you to reflect on the three areas of stewardship and how they are … Continue reading →
November is a month of thanksgiving. Why was the fourth Thursday of November selected as the time to Thank God?

When the great cathedrals were built they were designed to communicate belief with high ceilings reaching to heaven and spires pointing to God, pulpits communicating the centrality of the word, altars behind screens keeping in the holiness of God. And they still do. Within the space of our places of worship we tell the faith … Continue reading →
