ELIM 100 CENTENARY - 100 Years of Elim
Beginning in Ireland in 1915, under the leadership of evangelist George Jeffreys, Elim was birthed as a dynamic Pentecostal movement dedicated to pioneer evangelism, church planting and Holy Spirit ministry.
One hundred years later, Elim has hundreds of churches in cities, towns and communities throughout the UK and works in over 40 countries around the world. At the core of Elim there are thousands of ordinary people serving God in extraordinary ways.
Elim’s birth was extraordinary. The year was 1915. It could hardly have been a less promising time as the nation was feeling the full horrors of the First World War. In Monaghan, Ireland, a small group of young men had invited welsh evangelist George Jeffreys to hold some meetings. Their fervour and faith drew him and, on 7 January 1915, in the Temperance Hall the Elim Evangelistic Band was formed to spread the Christian gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit to Ireland and beyond.
