Welcome to Elim Glossop
Elim Christian Centre Glossop
Welcome! Elim Christian Centre is a community of people, based in Glossop, who love Jesus, have received His good news and do our best to follow Him. Being a follower of Jesus is not about being self-righteous, perfect or proud, it’s about humbling yourself before God, recognising just how much you need him and receiving his help.
As we do this, Jesus invites us to follow His ways; to love God with all of ourselves, and to love our neighbour as ourselves. Our whole lives are a response to the love we’ve already received. So we aren’t perfect people and we don’t expect you to be either. We want you to know, whether you are following Jesus, spiritually seeking or more of a skeptic, you are welcome. Please take a look around and get in touch, we’d love to meet you.

Isaiah 61:4 – They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.
To see renewal in the person’s life through the gospel.
To see people discover a life-giving friendship with God. To see people forgiven of their sins, loving God wholeheartedly and loving their neighbour (all people) as themselves, to see them walking with Jesus and following His ways for His glory.
To see the full person reanimated and regenerated by the work of Jesus, moving from despair to hope, from anxiousness to peace, from darkness to light, from meaninglessness to purpose, from grief to comfort, from condemnation to forgiveness.
Matthew 11:28-30 –
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke [way] upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke [way] is easy and my burden is light.” [brackets added]
