Our History

Emanuel Manchester is historically one of the larger ELCA churches in New England. An inter-generational and Reconciling in Christ congregation, our parishoners come from a wide variety of backgrounds and we want to continue as a church of all ages, for all people. We are proud of our 140 year history and Swedish heritage. We are connected with the local community and strive to make a difference in Manchester. The people of Emanuel love worship and music and Emanuel is known for having high quality music and has been known as the "singing church". Our Sunday School is strong and vibrant.
