Welcome to Elmwood Church!

leadershipteamnov2016

We are an independent, evangelical church, with a vision to be a loving and learning Jesus-centred family, united in our desire to serve God, in reaching our community.

Elmwood is a very welcoming church, where the services are quite informal, with a great mix of applied bible teaching, lively singing and heartfelt prayer as we worship Jesus each week.

This site reflects many of the ways you can connect with Elmwood and explore faith in the Lord Jesus - but the web can never do justice to the reality - so do come and see for yourself this Sunday at 10.30am or 6.30pm.

Leaders Thoughts: Green Leaves

Do you worry about your carbon footprint?

During the summer, I was sitting in an airport lounge. While waiting for the flight, I learned from a poster on the wall that the airport had planted over 2,000 trees on its grounds in a bid to offset its carbon footprint. The green leaves of trees are wonderful air purifiers, converting unwanted carbon dioxide through their pores into fresh, life-giving oxygen.

As God’s people, each of us is planted in different place during our daily lives, places in need of His life-giving love and message of hope.

Let’s seek to be His green leaves, agents of renewal in the situations we face and with the people we meet.

Of course, in the foliage of a tree, there is not just one leaf but many leaves; and not only one tree but many trees in woods and forests around the world. In the same way, together as His church we can impact our local and global communities with the renewing power of His Kingdom love.

Yours,
Richard Bryce
Trustee

30 Years Celebration

In 1987 the members of Eccles Evangelical Church fulfilled their God-given vision to construct a new church building on the site of the Elms. 30 years later, the building in which you sit on a Sunday continues to be the fulfilment of that dream.

As we look forward to the appointment of our new senior leader and seek God's will for the future, we thought it appropriate to take time to thank God for the work he has been doing here at Elmwood Church for the past 30 years.

On Saturday 11th November we are planning a celebration service with a celebration meal beforehand and we would love you to be involved. Do you have a story to tell about how God has worked in your life while you have been part of the Elmwood fellowship? Do you have photos of a ministry you have been involved in or an event you took part in?

Perhaps you would like to get involved with planning and helping with our celebration? Get in touch with Richard Haworth. Alternatively give or email your stories and photos to Fran Townsend at 30years@elmwoodchurch.org.uk
