Resources to help churches, groups and individuals engage with the work of Elim Missions.

Missions Sunday 2022

Every year on the Sunday closest to the 23rd June we mark the anniversary of the Vumba Massacre. This year we want to use this moment to honour our missionaries who gave their lives for the Gospel, but also to celebrate and give thanks for the work that is still going on around the world through Elim Missionaries and Global Partners. This video is available to be shown in Elim churches as part of Missions Sunday 2022, whether that is the Sunday closest to June 23rd or any other point in the year.

All resources can be downloaded for use either individually, in your small groups or church services, both in-person and online.
