Image for Kingdom Flourishing Church

What does a church that flourishes as it builds God's Kingdom look like? Starting on Vision Sunday (January 10th) we explore the vital elements of a vital church. Putting Vision into action, seeking God, becoming 7-Day Disciples, rooting for our church family - and much more besides.

Part 1: Vision

Elmwood Church are committed to becoming “A loving and learning Jesus-centred family; united in our desire to serve God in reaching our community.” This message explore the type of Kingdom Flourishing Church that Elmwood is called to be and that over the coming years will pursue LOVE for one-another, LEARN to obey Jesus, increasingly SERVE the God we worship, and actively REACH out to those around.

Part 2: That Deeply Believes

Elmwood's core beliefs, our 'Basis of Faith' is drawn from the Evangelical Alliance of two million christians across the UK. We explore our deeply held beliefs in the love and grace of God and much else besides...

Part 3: That Enacts Mission & Vision

by David Fowler January 24, 2016 10:30am

The Christian church has a timeless mission to love God with their whole being and to love others as themselves. Elmwood has a vision over the next two years to be and become 'A loving and learning Jesus-centred family; united in our desire to serve God in reaching our community.' We explore what it may mean to bring our lives fully into God's service.

Part 4: 7-Day Discipleship

by David Fowler February 7, 2016 10:30am

Jesus' call to his disciples was not to 'look bright and shiny on Sunday mornings.' We examine what it means to be a whole life, whole week disciple - growing more like Jesus day-by-day.

Part 5: That Loves to Serve

by Marijke Hoek February 14, 2016 10:30am

John 13:12-17

The scope of Jesus’ servanthood encompasses everything. It faithfully engages us in costly servanthood and a vulnerable intervention, rolling back selfishness. Rooted in love, He will empower us to live faithfully in and for the world.

Part 6: That Offers Wealth

by David Fowler March 13, 2016 10:30am

Amazingly Jesus spoke more about money than any other subject. He fully understood that men and women's hearts follow their cash. We examine what it means to be made in the image of a generous God - a God who is intent on resourcing his people as Kingdom builders.

Part 7: That Keeps on Living

by David Fowler March 20, 2016 10:30am

Churches that will build God's Kingdom need to keep on loving one another even when the going get's tough. Christians are called to a life of forbearance - forgiving others for all the minor niggles that otherwise can fester and spoil relationships.
