Welcome to Elim Community Church, Carlisle!

Good morning and welcome to the web site of Elim Community Church, Carlisle. On this site you will find details of most of our activities and information regarding our ministry.

Our purpose as a church is to make Christ known in Carlisle, Cumbria and the Borders and our greatest desire is to demonstrate and communicate the love of Christ within our region.

Coronavirus - all Meetings and Ministries Suspended until further notice

In keeping with most other Churches and as a result of the latest Government and Public Health advice regarding the COVID-19 crisis, we have taken the decision to suspend our Church gatherings from this Friday 20th March, until further notice. This includes our Oasis Coffee shop, Little Steps group and CAP Debt Centre, as well as our Sunday services and group meetings, all of which will cease by tomorrow evening, (Wednesday 18th March).

We are encouraging our Cell Groups to continue to keep contact with each other and to meet using Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp initially. Please do your best to maintain and build community by phone calls and through the internet as much as you are able.

We will do our best to help anyone in need of shopping, conversation, collection of medicines etc. Please try to arrange this through your family and cell groups first, but don’t hesitate to telephone the Church Office 01228 523991 and leave a message or in more urgent situations, ring me on 07775 666869.

God has not been taken by surprise by the events which have occurred, and we are trusting that we can grow and thrive as individual disciples and as a Church Community, despite the change in circumstances. This challenging time, can be an opportunity for growth and a fresh dependence on the Lord Jesus Christ and his grace.

Please adhere to the Governments guidelines. Act wisely to stay safe, and keep in touch with each other, and close to the Lord.

We will be attempting to bring you a shortened service via the internet on SUNDAY at 10.30am. Nobody will be allowed to attend personally. See details below.

With love and concern,
