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.

Elmwood Leadership Team.

All sessions are informative, accessible and interactive. Open to all, free of charge. Bring a packed lunch, refreshments will be provided.

Booking essential. Contact us for further info.

Leader’s Thoughts: 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 praise His name with dancing; let them sing praises to Him with tambourine and lyre. For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation." God loves to see us dance!

Our bodies are instruments of service and worship. How we use our bodies has much greater spiritual significance than we may realise. The enemy is working hard to make us believe otherwise. God intended our worship in motion for much more noble use. He finds us acceptable in our whole life worship.

"I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service and spiritual worship." Romans 12:1.

Warm welcome to the Mellors!

Elmwood would like to give a warm welcome to Chris and Fi Mellor. Chris started at Elmwood this week 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.

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 […]
