About Elim History

Serving the Community in Practical Ways.

Who We Are


George JeffreysElim Churches were established by George Jeffries, in 1915. As a Minister, the meetings that George Jeffries held gathered such crowds, that churches were soon established.

People would wait for hours to get into the meetings, with many wanting to know an assurance of being right with God.

Today the Elim Community Church in Ammanford is one of 600 Elim Churches in this country, with another 9000 worldwide.

Elim continues to be known as a thriving Christian environment, deriving it’s name from the oasis where God’s people were able to find rest and be refreshed in a difficult journey from harsh  treatment  to a promised land. (Exodus 15) The Elim Community Church seeks to be a place which lives up to its original vision.

We seek to reflect this heritage by keeping the church contemporary in its style, relevant to everyday life-styles and a new modern place that is a delight to worship God in. We continue to meet here every week, as well as in our homes.  We also use the building to benefit the local community, whilst seeking to grow in our relationship with groups and families in the neighbourhood.
