Welcome to Elmwood Church

We are an independent church with a vision to grow deeper in our relationship with God, to draw closer in community and to reach out further with the Gospel. To fulfil this vision during the present global crisis we are meeting virtually wherever we can to worship, pray, encourage and learn from the bible

As you can’t come to church, we’ll come to you!

We will have an online service every Sunday that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home. We have midweek Life Groups meeting virtually and will have resources for children and young people. We are also seeking to be good neighbours to all those in need at this time and provide support where able.

If you would like to be part of our virtual gatherings or we can help you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Our church is situated opposite Salford Royal Hospital. We want to be an encouragement to all those working on our behalf in the NHS, so we had this banner made to thank them.

Let’s keep praying for the protection of all our key workers at this time.

Got questions about life?

Try Alpha online!

What is Alpha?

A series of interactive sessions that explore the big questions of life, purpose and the Christian faith. Each session starts with a short film. Then there’s a discussion where you can share your thoughts and hear from others in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you like.

Sign up

We’re running Alpha Online on Mondays at 8pm starting on 22 June. To participate you will need both a webcam and a microphone. To sign up, please leave your details via our contact form and Fran will get in touch.

Communicate

We are here for you. Get in touch via our contact page if you have a concern, need support or have a suggestion.

We will keep you connected through this website and via social media: Facebook and Twitter.

Care

We will do all we can to give practical support and encouragement; show care and compassion; help people to know they are loved, valued and not on their own.

Let us all take this opportunity to show practical love and support to our neighbours, whilst taking all necessary precautions to ensure we’re only spreading kindness.

Let’s be extra-milers. Let’s be Christ’s hands and feet in a time of crisis. Let’s love others as we love ourselves.

Carry on

We are looking at other ways we can worship together and be church at this time – even though we can’t physically meet.

Let’s not forget God is in control. He is our safe place and we are never alone. His strength will carry us through.

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble”
Psalm 46:1
