Who are we as ELIM?

East Ham Elim Church is a multicultural and international church which was started nearly 100 years ago by the Jeffrey brothers. As a church, it played a significant role in the Elim Pentecostal movement and has been a witness to Jesus since 1925 in East Ham and the wider East London community.

The name Elim was taken from the account in the Book of Exodus chapter 15 verse 27, where the Israelites, leaving the bondage of Egypt under the leadership of Moses, found an oasis called Elim: “Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve wells of water and seventy palm trees; so they camped there by the waters.” This represented a place of refreshing and it was thought appropriate for a revival movement at that time.
