The Church Under Persecution

We were contacted on Facebook by a dear colleague in Sri Lanka regarding the terrible bombings. This happened virtually as they took place on Easter Sunday. He kept us informed on what was happening until we were advised that all Social Media was being shut down by the government of Sri Lanka. Fortunately, their Government […]

New Horizons

We have sadly come to the end of an era whereby we are saying goodbye to Pastor Alistair and his family. I’m sure you will agree with me that they will all be missed. His teaching over the last 25 years has benefited the whole church and we are so much the better for his […]

Farewell

The old saying goes ‘All good things come to an end!’ We at Elim Christian Centre are entering a season of change. It has been my privilege to serve as Senior Pastor for just over twenty five years, and I will be stepping down from this role at the end of April. I want to […]

Lest we forget

Honesty is always the best policy

Honesty and the simple exercise of telling the truth seem to be at a premium in the days in which we live. We read of corporate greed in the market place and of business leaders rewarding themselves with exorbitant bonus levels bringing upon themselves negative reputations of greed etc. Multi-nationals are often accused of tax […]

A new season

Greetings, and welcome to the web site of The Elim Christian Centre, Glossop, Derbyshire, U.K. What a glorious Summer we have enjoyed here in the U.K. with record temperatures and many flocking the coastal resorts both at home and overseas. September marks a change in the seasons as the early stages of Autumn begin and […]
