Elmwood Lifeline

by Web Team

A friend I met at Elmwood’s Toddler group told me why she decided to go on our Alpha Course. “I just love what Elmwood do for families here” she said. “As a mum, Elmwood is my lifeline.” As a fellow mum, I completely concur! Because we’ve been doing it for so long, we sometimes forget […]

Let us pray

by Web Team

Earlier this week I heard someone on the radio say that prayer is a declaration of our weakness. When we pray we come to our Heavenly Father for all sorts of reasons, but it’s in the knowledge that we are weak and He is strong, we understand very little and He knows everything. Many people […]

Childlike Faith

by Web Team

The prayer study I was reading recently focused on faith and the idea that when we ask God in faith we will receive what we ask for. The author mentioned how we need to become like children and have the sort of faith they have. As Youth and Children’s Pastor, I get to spend lots […]

Leader, Follower or Both?

by Web Team

Are you a leader or a follower? If we take a little time to think about it, most of us will discover we are both. We may belong to a Homegroup that is led by someone else, but at the same time we may be a team leader at work or lead a family. You […]

Marching on Together

by Web Team

We are nearly in March which means that my family and I have been at Elmwood for 6 months! Since my arrival last October I‘ve been so encouraged by people and by the unity I’ve seen demonstrated – Carina, Matthew and I really feel part of Elmwood’s family. It’s also been a challenging time, but […]
