“…We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,  so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God” Colossians 1:9-10


Whether university is a new adventure, or you’ve been studying in York for a couple of years already, we’d love to tell you how as a student you can be part of the York Elim family.

As a church situated very near to the university, we welcome new students to our church each year and we want to extend this welcome to you! We aim to serve students well so we invite you to be grounded in our church.

We do not attempt to be cool, outrageous, or gimmicky. We aim to help our students become biblically literate by providing high content bible teaching on Sunday mornings as well as giving opportunities to experience the power of the Holy Spirit in a context that avoids the fake or bizarre.

We frequently host courses that will equip you, grow your faith and develop the gifts and abilities God has placed in you. We actively encourage you to get involved in our fellowship, serving God alongside us by joining a team.

We want to see your faith grow through the Sunday morning teaching but also through mentoring (offered both in a one-to-one style and in small groups) serving and fellowship.
