New to Church?

00 Welcome Welcome! Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we hope our website helps you to find out everything you want to know about our Church.

Some key information about the church...

Where & when does the church meet?

Our Church meets at 10.30am for our Sunday Service. We suggest you aim to arrive at least 10 minutes early to get a parking spot and seat in time for the service to start.  Our Sunday morning service lasts around 80 minutes. 

We meet at:

Tamworth Elim Church
Bamford Street,
B77 2AT

You can see a map on our contact us page

There is limited parking available on the site (two small car parks on Bamford Street; one slightly larger car park on Neville Street). Many people park on Abbey Road a short walk away as Bamford Street can be very congested. 

What should I expect when I visit the church on a Sunday morning?

Our Welcome Team will be pleased to meet you as you arrive and they will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go. Families often arrive in time to catch up with each other before the service begins. At the start of the service, the church family celebrates the goodness and love of God through music. Our music is lively and contemporary and we are blessed with a talented all-age group of musicians. This time can also include prayers, Bible reading and church/community/family news and updates.

The children and youth remain in the main meeting for about 30 minutes before they leave to enjoy their own age-relevant teaching.  There is also a sound-proof crèche area for the very young, with views and sound links into the main church auditorium (this is available for parents to use throughout the service). 

Pastors Steve Jonathan and Dan Brockway teach regularly on the biblical foundation for contemporary Christian living and we are also blessed with many gifted and able speakers that supplement our teaching ministry each week. 

Following the service, refreshments are available to all with time to catch up with the wider church family and ask any questions you may have. 

No offering is taken at our service, though an offerings box is situated on the back wall of our church for those wishing to give to the work and ministry of our church.

What happens for the kids at church?

We have a range of fantastic programmes for the kids at the Church for ages 0–12. Children stay with their parents for the first part of the service as we celebrate together. An announcement will be made when the children can go to their age-appropriate groups and programmes. If this is your first visit you will need to go with your children to register them.

For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for your family under Church Life.

Is there a dress code?

No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.

Will I have to join in?

You are of course free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
