rediscover Mission

Go and make disciples of all the nations ... and I am with you always.

Our desire in mission is to let the whole world know and experience God and to live, love and thrive for him. Everyone has a different part to play, and all are important. We all have unique gifts; some spiritual, some more practical - some may serve full time for God overseas, others may play a more supporting role – each is vital. We want everyone to know what part God is asking them to play in his mission around the world.

Sometimes God wants us firmly in our home context, and sometimes he asks us to go overseas for a time. Elim mission exists to serve, send and equip people to do just that. Empowered by the Holy Spirit and with a faith that can move even mountains, anything is possible!

Let's dream big. Let's imagine a world with no suffering, no hunger, no disease. Let's imagine a world where everyone has a life-changing, awesome relationship with God. Lets imagine a world where every single person can live, love and thrive!

Below are profiles of Mission projects supported by Elim and Rediscover Church. More are yet to come, oncluding some inspirational stories!

Surf Church Hossegor, France

Richard and Regi Ellerington

After 13 Years pastoring an Elim church in Weston Super Mare, Richard, Regi and their family sensed God’s call to plant a church in a surfing hotspot; Hossegor, France! They have a vision to reach the surfing community and see people who may otherwise have little connection with church impacted by the Gospel. “We are Surfers and local people who are discovering that faith is the greatest ride of life and is worth exploring. We are committed to following Jesus and trying to make a real difference in the world around us. We are not perfect; we don’t have all the answers; but we have found something-life changing in having a relationship with Jesus.” Today, Surf Church Hossegor is a thriving community. They combine a passion for surfing and extreme sports with vibrant, multicultural services translated into both French and English. Excellent coffee is always served at their surf café too! Yearly summer camps are an exciting opportunity to join them! Find out more: www.elim.org.uk/Articles/486248/Richard_and_Regi.aspx www.surfchurch.com
