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.

The Brevity of Life

Here on earth we often live life as if we are going to live forever and yet the Bible tells us we are like a blade of grass that is here today and gone tomorrow. The reality is that we only briefly pass through this world and our citizenship as Christians is in heaven. We […]

God loves you!

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” You may believe what John said (you should – it’s from the Bible! John 3:16), but do you honestly believe that God loves YOU? Just as you are…whatever you […]

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 […]

Leader’s Thoughts: The Brevity of Life

Here on earth we often live life as if we are going to live forever and yet the Bible tells us we are like a blade of grass that is here today and gone tomorrow. The reality is that we only briefly pass through this world and our citizenship as Christians is in heaven. We are called to live life with eternity ever before us.

Christ suffered all He did for us because of the joy that lay before Him. If we focus on the same eternal perspective how does that affect how we live in the here and now? How can we make our short life on earth count for Christ and eternity?

It is my absolute passion to share the love and message of Christ with those around me. I don’t want any of my family and friends to be eternally lost. I want them to become my brothers and sisters in Christ forever. I shudder at the thought of my life being in any way an obstacle to others finding Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. I am sure you feel the same.

With this in mind please consider who you might invite and accompany to the Alpha Course in the New Year. Be praying for those you might ask.

Be encouraged by the words of Jesus, who said: “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit – fruit that will last.” (John 15:16)
