We are a Pentecostal church in the city of Gloucester that seeks to be contemporary and relevant.
Getting to know God and worshipping Him are two of our main priorities.
We're very much a multi-cultural church with people from many different nations and all walks of life.
Families with youth and children play a big part in our life together.
Whoever you are and wherever you are from, we invite you to come and join us
on our amazing journey with God.
An International Welcome
With over 15 nationalities represented, we are an extremely diverse church with many expressions.
Variety in language, colour and culture is a great blessing that we embrace.
We see this as opportunity to get to understand and appreciate the nations around us a little bit better.
There's something special about seeing people from different cultural backgrounds all worshipping Jesus together; it is a brilliant picture of God’s amazing diversity.
A Family Church
Gloucester Elim has always had a strong reputation for its emphasis on family worship and all age christian ministry.
We hope that our appreciation of individual families will be a reflection
of our bigger church family.
Just as in a regular family, we want
to treat one another with acceptance,
love and forgiveness.
Whatever your age or background, you can be sure you will be made welcome.
Our main Sunday meeting is at 10:30 am and it includes teaching and ministry. We conclude with tea and coffee. From September to July we also have a Sunday school.
A crèche room is also available during the meeting.
We also have other regular mid-week activities during term-time, including:
✧ Refresh Coffee Morning - on Monday,
✧ Little Palms - our baby and toddler group on Wednesday,
✧ ZEKI - our Friday evening for teenagers.
Other special meetings include:
✧ ThreeOneEight - our men's get together

Worship & Word
We love worshipping God for all that he has done for us through Jesus. Corporate worship is the collective expression of our love and gratitude. When we worship God together, we release his Spirit to equip, empower and bless us.
God is amazing, and for that reason alone,
we count it a privilege to worship Him through song and through the way that we live our daily lives.
The Bible is our instruction manual for
getting through life. Here at Elim we believe in the importance of good Bible teaching and preaching. We believe that all Scripture is God-inspired. We want our teaching to be interesting practical and relevant. Preaching has a central place in the life of our church.
