Planting churches around the world

A Legacy of Church Planting

It is a privilege for the Elim Church UK to have within our history the heart-breaking story of the Vumba  massacre in 1978. We will never forget our missionaries who were killed so mercilessly. Their story continues to inspire us to go to the whole earth with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Missions Sunday

Each year we hold Missions Sunday in honour of the deaths of our missionaries. We promote our Be Church campaign for church planting on this significant day. All around the Elim world we see many different expressions of new churches being planted.

Missions Sunday 2017 is 25th June.

Be Church - Our Ongoing Mission

We are in exciting days. Every month we tell a new story of a new church planter going across borders, and even cultures and languages, to tell others about Jesus and to start a church.

This is what Elim UK does. We equip, we fund, we send people to those who have never heard of the Lord and we pray.

Church Planter Profile

Boureima is originally from Burkina Faso and was brought up as a Muslim.  He accepted Jesus as his Saviour in 1985. He came to the UK to study and gained a BA(Hons) in Applied Theology and cross-cultural studies, he is now studing for his Master Degree.

Alongside his studies he is also planting churches across Burkina Faso and is now strategizing with us on planting churches across the whole of West Africa.

The Impact of Your Donations

Just some of the countries Be Church is supporting thanks to your generosity.

Burkina-Faso Burkina Faso

Boureima Diallo is an Elim church planter in Burkina Faso, involved in training and releasing church planters across West Africa. Through this training 88 churches have been planted. Thanks to money given to Be Church we were able to repair Boureima’s car, a vital mode of transport for reaching the remote locations of churches and church planters. Because of the car repairs Boureima was able to support the church planters and also audit the state of church growth in Burkina Faso. As two baptised converted Muslim families define a church, the figure of 88 churches was reduced to 71 as 17 of the plants had only 1 converted Muslim family in attendance. We thank God for Boureima and his integrity! Please join with us as we pray for God’s protection and blessing to be upon Boureima during 2015.

China China

It is exciting to see that money given to Be Church has been able to assist in the setting up of a church in China. In a country where Christianity is difficult to share, it is amazing to see that Elim are church planting and see lives impacted by the Gospel. Thank you!

Brazil Brazil

Training is a vital part of developing leaders overseas. Because of your giving we were able to fund transportation for 2 pastors to attend training.

Romania Romania

Bob and Edith McDonald are an amazing couple, sharing the love of Jesus with the young people and Roma community of Romania. With the money you donated we have been able to supply chairs for the new church building that is reaching out to the Roma community, seeing many of them baptised. We were also able to send 6 pallets of aid to distribute to the Roma community and provide personal support for Bob and Edith.

Middle East

As one of the unstable places we work, raising support for our missionaries in the Middle East does prove difficult. With money from Be Church we have been able to help support our missionaries and see them continue to establish ministry and train up indigenous leaders.

France France

Rich and Regi Ellerington, along with their 3 children, moved to Hossegor, France in August 2012. The vision was to plant a church in one of the hubs of the surfing world to reach the surfing community and see people, who may otherwise have little to no connection with church, impacted by the Gospel. This church has been planted and is having an impact upon the community of Hossegor. With money given to Be Church we have been able to meet the financial needs of the Elleringtons and keep them church planting in Western Europe. Please pray with us for God’s provision and for doors to continue to open to see the continent of Europe won for Jesus.

India India

Partnering with those who are working effectively in countries to see churches planted is an important part of what Elim Missions does. A partnership that has impacted many is in India where we have been able to give into a church planting program. This program has seen 295 bibles given to new believers and 16 bicycles to be used by church planters. Speakers, musical instruments and two seminars to train church planters have been funded.
