Welcome to East Midlands Christian Fellowships

EMCF is an area church family with a Vision to GO.PLANT.BUILD new expressions of church in the East Midlands and beyond!

We have churches across the East Midlands in various locations:

Our latest church planting initiative is a new city wide church in Nottingham. We meet in homes and communities with monthly celebrations. Also incorporates Eastwood Community Church

Pathway Community Church now has 3 bases in Leicester, Lutterworth and Hinkley with vision to plant out more bases in the county.

Belper Community Church is a group of people from all kinds of backgrounds who are committed to living out the Christian faith in a relevant and practical way. 


EMCF Preaching Series june/july 2018

Join us at any of our locations as we journey together through the book of Joshua. Titled "On the Threshold of a Dream" we look at how the people of Israel under the new leadership of Joshua made their way into the promised land. Our hope and prayer is the series will equip and encourage us as we look to the exciting future that God has for EMCF.


Our leader training programme


LEAD Academy is a joined-up approach to leadership development across EMCF

Local teams will be identifying, training and releasing leaders at all levels. As we believe we are Better Together, this is one of the things we are choosing to do as EMCF. We use the term ‘Level 2’ to help describe this next stage of leadership which will involve specific input, deeper reflection, support and on-going encouragement.

How does it Work?

LEAD Academy is made up of 3 parts which work together as a whole. It commences in Autumn 2018 and will run over a 12-month period.
