Welcome to Salford Elim Church

Hello there! Thanks for visiting us.

We’ve put this page together to give you some background on who we are, what we do, and our values. We’ve also included some details of ways that you can get in touch with us, so please scroll down and have a read.

Our meetings

Our main Sunday service starts at 10.30am, except on the first Sunday of the month when we have a quieter service at 9.30am, followed by an all-age service at 10.30am.

We also have a range of meetings & events going on throughout the week too. We’ve got meetings specifically for children, men, and women, so we’ve got something for everyone to get involved in.

On term-time Tuesdays from 6.15pm there is Kidz Klub for primary school age children – it’s a mixture of crafts, stories and games. Then at 7.45pm there is an older group “Roots” that meets at  The Vine Cafe.

The Vine Cafe is our cafe that is open from 8am-3pm Monday-Friday, and from 9am-1pm on Saturday. Please visit us if you can.

There are also groups that meet midweek for those who want to think more about the Christian faith.

Our leadership

Ministry Staff

We have a number of paid ministry staff, who have responsibility for leading specific ministry areas.

Neil Hudson
Church Leader/Pastor
I'm employed by church for a day a week, to keep an eye on the overall strategy of the church, have a major part to play in the teaching and preaching, and to tell good stories about what God has done with us to others. My other day job is with the London Institute of Contemporary Christianity.

Natalie Chen
Leader of Pastoral Care/Discipleship
I joined the church in January 2017 and am employed 2 days a week to oversee the work of pastoral care and discipleship. I enjoy working alongside Neil and Ian on the Leadership team, and have a heart to see people growing in their relationship with God and learning how to follow Jesus in their everyday life. I also work part time for Street Pastors as Coordinator for the Manchester City Centre Project.

Ian Peacock
Main Worship Leader & Music Coordinator
I've been part of the church since April 2011, when I was employed part time as Worship Co-ordinator. Since then, I've joined the leadership team, and have loved working with them. I also work four days a week as a music teacher, and love writing and recording songs in my spare time.

Morag Peacock
Children's & Youth Coordinator
I've been a part of Elim for several years now, joining when Ian became the Worship Coordinator. It wasn't long before I got involved in kids work, and then became the Children's and Youth worker. As well as the work I do for this I also volunteer in The Vine on Wednesdays. Outside of kids work and church my time is spent being a mother, housewife and doing the odd acting job.

Alex McGregor
Joint Coordinator for Young Adult's Work
I joined Salford Elim in 2015 and have enjoyed being involved with the Sunday School groups and getting to know the young people, as well as being able to take them away each summer to Criccieth Pathfinder Camp in North Wales. I am looking forward to developing the work with young adults at Elim, on top of the great youth work which is already taking place. Alongside this job, I also work in a high school and volunteer as a counsellor.

Andrew Gordon
Joint Coordinator for Young Adult's Work
Alex dragged me along to Salford Elim in 2015. Starting to get disillusioned with Church and struggling to find somewhere I could call home, that Sunday was certainly a case of being in the right place at the right time. I have loved every minute of being part of the Salford Elim family ever since, and I love the City of Salford and serving its people. In the summer Alex and I run Criccieth Pathfinder Camp a Christian Youth Activity Camp, and my full time job is Foundation Co-ordinator for Salford City Football Club. I am excited to be taking the next step on my journey with Jesus, Salford Elim and of course Alex as coordinators of young adult’s work.

Our values

We’re trying to be a church that is informal but meaningful; focussed but not intense; helpful but not intrusive; friendly but not overwhelming. Most of the songs we sing will have been written in the last 20 years, though we might have some older hymns as well. The preachers use everyday language so that people can connect with what is being said. The prayers reflect the personalities of those who pray. Our biggest hope is that people feel that they connect with God.

What do we think is important?

We think friends are important; we believe that grace is important – so we don’t want to be judgmental; we believe that everyone has something to offer; we believe that we can experience God’s love and presence together.

Our life together as church is not an end in itself. We believe that the God that created this world loves it. He never gives up on it. One of the ways he demonstrates that love is through Jesus-followers, who seek to make a difference wherever they find themselves. So as a church we want to be a community that will equip people to grow as disciples of Jesus, as they live their everyday lives: at work, at home, in their neighbourhoods.

After all, Jesus didn’t come to earth, live, die, and rise from the dead, just so folks would come to church. He has a much wider plan than that. And it includes us.

How long has the church been in Salford?

The church began in 1950 after a series of meetings on Eccles New Road. For many years we had a building in the precinct area. Around ten years ago, we began to share this church building with the congregation of Holy Angels.

Does the church belong to a national group?

We belong to the churches known as the Elim Pentecostal Church. It’s a national group of around 650 churches.
