Elim Harrogate is a family, adopted by God. From Him we receive the privilege of worshipping and serving Him together as His children, as well as caring, loving and praying for each other.
As a family, guests are always welcome within our household, but we desire to see people transition from guest to family member. We believe God wants to weave each of us into the fabric of His community, the church. He wants us to explore the joy and the life that flows from partnering with the church and discover how God intended us to be part of a community that is to be an unstoppable, transforming force in every society on the planet.
At Elim Harrogate we believe it’s a significant and important decision when a follower of Christ decides to plant themselves in a local church, believing this is where the Lord has led them. The leadership of Elim Harrogate strives to love and care for it’s members well, and in turn we rely on our members to accomplish our collective work as a church, in partnership together.
