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!

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. 

Big church day out - north


We've been granted an extended time to camp ahead of the event to spend time with our Salt and Light Sphere - Synergy. We are so excited to be going together as we spend time with one another and in God's presence. 

Big Church Day Out is a Christian music festival over three days in two locations across the UK. We are excited to be able to join with other churches and streams for some of the best Christian rock, contemporary worship music, gospel and Christian rap as well as being able to be together as the Synergy Sphere of churches.


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 May 2017 and will run over a 12-month period.
