Welcome to Elmwood Church!


We are an independent, evangelical church, with a vision to be a loving and learning Jesus-centred family, united in our desire to serve God, in reaching our community.

Elmwood is a very welcoming church, where the services are quite informal, with a great mix of applied bible teaching, lively singing and heartfelt prayer as we worship Jesus each week.

This site reflects many of the ways you can connect with Elmwood and explore faith in the Lord Jesus - but the web can never do justice to the reality - so do come and see for yourself this Sunday at 10.30am or 6.30pm.

Leaders Thoughts: Childlike Faith

The prayer study I was reading recently focused on faith and the idea that when we ask God in faith we will receive what we ask for. The author mentioned how we need to become like children and have the sort of faith they have.

As Youth and Children’s Pastor, I get to spend lots of time with children and learn a lot from them, particularly about prayer. Like a child who depends and trusts in their Daddy, we need to have that same faith and dependence on our Father in heaven.

Matthew 18:4 says, ‘Anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.’

Let’s be prepared to humble ourselves before God and, as we continue our series on prayer, have faith like a child and pray with expectant hearts. I would also encourage you to learn from the children around us, and to keep praying for our little ones.
