Ashbourne Elim Church is a welcoming, family focused church in the heart of the Derbyshire Dales.

We are an Elim Pentecostal church and believe God has a plan for Ashbourne and it’s surrounding villages.

Our Sunday services are welcoming and engaging. We enjoy band led worship with a mix of new and well loved songs. There is fantastic provision for both children and youth during the service.

Situated in a prominent location on the edge of town at the Waterside Retail Park, we are easily accessible on foot or by car and have plenty of parking spaces.

Core Values

Our core values as a church are:

  • REACHING IN – discipleship & faith formation
  • REACHING OUT – evangelism & mission
  • REACHING UP – prayer & worship
  • REACHING TOGETHER – inclusiveness & community


Our mission statement is:

“We exist to worship Jesus and to
demonstrate His love and hope to all.”


Our vision statement is:

“Our vision is to move forward together towards Christian
maturity and unity in readiness to fulfil God’s purpose.”


Originally founded in 1923 by the Jeffrey’s brothers, the church was located on South Street in the old Mission Hall. In 2009, plans started to move into a larger custom built building in the new retail park. In 2011, the new church building was opened and we are continuing to grow as we head towards our centenary.
