The Estuary Elim Group of churches are three Essex based Elim Pentecostal Churches in Ashingdon, Rayleigh and Southend-on-Sea with a shared Ministry team. Our churches are made up of ordinary people responding to the love of God and the life changing message of Jesus Christ. Our services are lively with contemporary music, worship and preaching and teaching relevant to the 21st Century. Our theme for 2012 was Fresh Fire, all of the ministry team preaching focused on The Holy Spirit and each month we focussed on a specific aspect of His ministry to grow in our knowledge and understanding of who He is and what He does. In 2013 we felt God is calling us to go on an adventure with Him. ‘Forward in Faith’ took us into unexplored territory. There were times when we are spiritually stretched, challenged and amazed. The key text for the year was the cry of Peter to Jesus: ‘Lord, if it’s you, tell me to come to you on the water.’ (Matthew 14 : 28). For 2014, our theme is the year of Powerful Prayers. We looked at some of the most powerful prayers in the Bible and the result of what happens when God answers prayer. Our theme for 2015 is Supernatural Springs, with Exodus 15:27 as our key verse for our centenary year.
