Hi, I would like to take a few moments to extend a very warm welcome to you and trust you enjoy your visit to our website.

Whether you’re just having a look, or are searching out for a place to worship, we’re delighted you have taken the time to visit.

To give you some idea of what all about, I’lI quickly sketch some of our foundational beliefs which can be further investigated by visiting the page “what we believe”.

Our mission statement “is engaging in Gods presence and serving our community by using our gifts”.

Firstly, we meet to worship Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus was who he said he was, the Son of God who came and died for our sins to give us a relationship with God the Father and the security of eternal life.

Secondly, we believe as a family that every person is of value and that is why whoever walks through our doors is important to us. We also seek to support each other as natural families do, and believe each member has gifts to bring to build up the family.

Thirdly, we’re all about serving our community.

That’s us in a nutshell!

I want to encourage you to fill out one of our connect cards that you’ll find by clicking here, as we’d love to connect with you.

Also, if you’ve got a specific prayer request you’d like us to pray for, please take a moment to visit our prayer section where you can leave a prayer request (anonymously if you’d prefer).

Our history and community

We recently celebrated 30 years here at Pype Hayes; our original church was at Erdington (hence the name) on South Road where we the Leadership felt at the time God was calling the church to a new location.

The name of Pype Hayes derives from a major landowner in Erdington called Henry de Pipe. On this land he built a house which later developed into Pype Hayes Hall.

During the war Pype Hayes was famous for making the Spitfire aeroplane and there is a roundabout named after it (Spitfire Island) incorporating a model of the plane. Today the main business is the Jaguar factory, although there are retail business parks and factory outlets.

We are an Elim Pentecostal Church

The name “Elim” is taken from the book of Exodus, where the exhausted and dispirited Israelites came to Elim, an oasis in the desert where there were twelve wells of water and seventy palm trees. (Exodus 15:27)

As a church we aim to offer an oasis, in the midst of a busy, often difficult world.

The Elim Pentecostal Church is a growing Movement of more than 550 Christian congregations in the UK and Ireland, founded in 1915 by George Jeffreys.
