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.

Operation Christmas Child

Help make a difference to a child who may get nothing this Christmas and get involved with Operation Christmas Child. It's a great idea and easy to do - particularly for children who love choosing gifts and packing a box for another child.

It's simple - get a medium sized shoe box, wrap in Christmas paper and fill it with age appropriate gifts for a boy or a girl. Pay a £5 donation for postage and packing and then bring your box to Elmwood and leave at reception by Sunday 18 November 2018.

For full instructions including a list of gifts ideas, pick up a leaflet from Reception and just follow the instructions or go to this link: how to pack a shoebox

Alternatively you can pack a box online using this link: shoebox online

If you have any questions - please speak to Angela Hopper

Remember - boxes must be back BY Sunday 18 November at the latest

What Kind of Sweet are You?

Leader’s Thoughts: What Kind of Sweet are You?

What confectionary are you most like?

Are you like a Mars Bar? Full of energy.

Are you more like a Twix? Can you see both sides of an argument?

Or are you closest to a Smartie? Quick to point out the faults in others, but unable to see them in yourself.

I have heard it said that the church needs less Smarties and more Refreshers. A Refresher is a tasty, tangy sherbet sweet. It is also someone who looks for every opportunity to speak encouragement into the lives of those around them – heartfelt, refreshing, thoughtful words and actions to build up the individuals they meet in the church and in their daily lives.

This week, as God’s people, let’s aim to be tangy ‘Refreshers’ in our encounters.

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs that it may benefit those who listen”
(Ephesians 4:29)

(Trustee)
