A seasonal church in the Episcopal tradition, located in beautiful Manchester-by-the-Sea on the north shore of Massachusetts.


For over 135 years, Emmanuel Church has provided summer and holiday residents and visitors of Manchester-by-the-Sea with a family faith community centered on Sunday worship and fellowship. Our lovely chapel and grounds, located a quarter-mile from Manchester’s Singing Beach, welcome all who seek grounding in weekly services, as well as those looking to celebrate weddings, baptisms or memorial services.




We offer two Sunday services June through Labor Day at 8:15 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.


Special celebrations

Our charming chapel and idyllic, coastal setting is ideal for special celebrations like weddings, baptisms and memorial services.

Beyond our summer season, we hope you might join us on Christmas Eve, Easter Sunday, or for one of our occasional Vesper services during the fall.

You will show me the path of life; in your presence is fullness of joy.
— Psalm 16:11
