Bethnal Green, London

It is always a pleasure to visit the Elim church in Bethnal Green, London - known locally as New Life Bible Church.

This vibrant fellowship of warm and welcoming people is pastored by Richard Jama (pictured here with his wife Toyin.

Richard Jama is also attaining an increased reputation in his home nation of Nigeria where he conducts leadership meetings and Crusades.

West Wellow

This was my first visit to this small Elim congregation on the outskirts of Salisbury.  One of the hallmarks of smaller congregations is the high percentage of people who are actively involved in the life and ministry of the church.  And this is particularly true of the good people in West Wellow.  It is in a period of transition and it was a pleasure to meet both those who had been part of its past leadership together with those who are involved in planning for the future.
