The Elim Pentecostal Church in Huddersfield was formed in 1931 when evangelist George Jeffreys visited the town with a message of salvation and a demonstration of The Holy Spirit’s presence in Pentecostal power. Today the church, in the heart of Huddersfield, has developed into an international congregation of all ages, but it continues to reflect its roots in its core values. Pentecostal by doctrine and practice we reach out with the good news of Christ in our services, through life groups and connect groups, in schools and out on the streets. The Bible remains central to all our beliefs and practices and we are committed to prayer and maintaining a consistently strong children’s and youth work.
We are a servant-hearted church, providing practical care in the community and touching those on the fringes of society. Through our work in the community we minister to refugees, asylum seekers and those with drug and alcohol problems.
Our desire to see people growing in their faith in Christ is seen in our weekly programme of events. These range from children's and youth meetings to an over 50s group. We have many small groups in different areas around the town as well as groups for men, women and different ethnic groups. We also run training and equipping courses.
