In 1987 the members of Eccles Evangelical Church fulfilled their God-given vision to construct a new church building on the site of the Elms. 30 years later, the building in which you sit on a Sunday continues to be the fulfilment of that dream.

As we look forward to the appointment of our new senior leader and seek God’s will for the future, we thought it appropriate to take time to thank God for the work he has been doing here at Elmwood Church for the past 30 years.

On Saturday 11th November we are planning a celebration service with a celebration meal beforehand and we would love you to be involved. Do you have a story to tell about how God has worked in your life while you have been part of the Elmwood fellowship? Do you have photos of a ministry you have been involved in or an event you took part in?

Perhaps you would like to get involved with planning and helping with our celebration? Get in touch with Richard Haworth. Alternatively give or email your stories and photos to Fran Townsend at
