We are an Anglican church that meets in the heart of the Uptown Neighborhood in Chicago. Anglican churches draw upon the ancient practices of Christianity in a way that all people can understand and participate. Our purpose in Chicago is to lift high the Son of God, that all in the city may be drawn to Him. We are committed to displaying the truth, beauty and goodness of Jesus Christ for the people of Uptown and Chicago.
Immanuel Anglican was started by a loving and visionary group of Chicagoans who wanted to seek the good of our great city. We began by praying together and throwing great parties. As our gatherings grew, we launched weekly services in October 2013 at Uplift Community High School at 900 W Wilson Avenue. We continued gathering there for almost seven years, until the beginning of the pandemic. Then, after six months of being livestream-only, we joyfully (and carefully) began gathering on Sundays again at the American Islamic College at 640 W Irving Park Road in fall of 2020. Throughout our different locations, our mission has stayed the same: to be a spiritual beacon church that makes the love of Jesus personal, tangible and visible to our city.
We are a liturgical church, which means that our worship service is highly participatory. If you visit us on a Sunday, you will have the chance to join with the congregation in the reading of Scripture, the recitation of ancient prayers, and singing a rich blend of songs. Our teachings address the deepest questions on the hearts of Chicagoans with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
If you haven’t gotten a chance to worship with us yet, we invite you to please join us on a Sunday morning! We gather on Sundays at 10AM at 640 W Irving Park Road. Click link below to learn more about worship at Immanuel.
Hope to meet you soon!
