Welcome to Elim Christian Centre Blenheim. It is our heart that you would find a place to belong here.  We ‘Welcome as family’ at Elim, that means we extend a welcome to anyone, regardless of culture, background, or stage of life. We are a multigenerational church, that recognise that every generation has a part to play in the life of our church. 

It is God’s desire that no one is separated from Him, therefore as a church we aim to be people that bring the life, hope, and purpose of Jesus to our world each and every day.

Bringing the Life, Hope, and Purpose of Jesus to our world


Every person is given life from God. We will value life from conception to the grave. We will operate in a manner that encourages and enhances life to see people given the opportunity to live life as Christ intended – ‘Life and that more abundantly’ 

Our hope is in Jesus Christ. In all things we will serve, lead, and influence based on that hope. 

We were created by God on purpose for a purpose. Guided by the Holy Spirit we will endeavor to see people released to function in and fulfil their purpose. 



What is an Elim Church?

We are an Elim Church in Blenheim New Zealand. Elim has over 40 churches throughout the towns and cities of New Zealand as well as churches in forty countries around the world. We all have a similar aim that unites us. It is a desire to reach up to God in worship; to reach out to our communities in service, and to share the difference Jesus Christ has made in our lives.
