Welcome to Elmwood Church!

leadershipteamnov2016

We are an independent, evangelical church, with a vision to grow deeper in devotion to God, closer in community together and to reach others further for the Gospel.

We aim to be a welcoming church, and our 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.

Ants to Elephants

I wonder if you enjoy nature programmes? I have been watching a wonderful series called ‘Secrets of Our Living Planet’ in which Chris Packham has been exploring the amazing networks of interdependence in the natural world. From fungi to lynx, from ants to giraffes, all living things rely on one another in surprising ways for […]

Worship Through Motion

There is a reason why dance is so important as part of our whole life worship. God created dance for His glory and pleasure. John 1:3 and Romans 11:36 tell us that everything comes from the Lord. Not only did He create all things, they were created for His pleasure. Psalm 149:3-4 says “Let them […]

Grace-filled Encounters

Jacob was about to meet his brother Esau for the first time in years. He was dreading the meeting. This was the brother Jacob had cheated out of his birthright and blessing. Jacob was bracing himself for a frosty – if not furious – reception. What actually happened when they met? The account in Genesis […]

Warm welcome to the Mellors!

Elmwood would like to give a warm welcome to Chris and Fi Mellor. Chris has started at Elmwood as our new Senior Leader.

Chris and Fi met while studying at London Bible College. They were married in 1986. They have three grown-up children: Joshua, Bethany and Samuel. Chris has been the senior leader of two previous churches in the North West of England. Fi has been a teacher for many years. They have also lived and worked as missionaries in Kenya, Nigeria and Ethiopia.

They are both very excited about serving God alongside the Elmwood Church in Salford. They are absolutely convinced they are where God has called them to be as they begin this next chapter of service for Him.

Leader’s Thoughts: Ants to Elephants

I wonder if you enjoy nature programmes? I have been watching a wonderful series called 'Secrets of Our Living Planet' in which Chris Packham has been exploring the amazing networks of interdependence in the natural world. From fungi to lynx, from ants to giraffes, all living things rely on one another in surprising ways for their health and survival.

We can see the disastrous results if just one part of this delicate network is removed or damaged in the destruction of parts of the Great Barrier Reef, the creation of barren wastelands by the cutting down of great swathes of rain forest, and the stripping of wildlife from huge tracts of land in Australia by the introduction of the domestic cat.

So, if every plant and every creature is dependent on others, we shouldn't be surprised that the God who created this wonderful symbiosis, has also designed us to be in relationships of mutual support and dependence, and the Church is where this should be most evident.

Every one of us has an important part to play, and whether we are an 'ant' or an 'elephant', a 'wallflower' or a 'whale', our role is vital to the health of Elmwood. Ask God to show you where and how He wants you to serve as part of His body, the Church.

"There, in the presence of the Lord your God, you......shall rejoice in everything you have put your hand to, because the Lord your God has blessed you." Deuteronomy 12:7
