About Us


BH1 Elim is an Elim Pentecostal church located in the heart of Springbourne, in Bournemouth.

Our aim is to show the people in and around the BH1 area that there is a God who cares for them.

We try to do this by getting involved in the community and demonstrating God’s love for them.

Feel free to pop in to the church sometime and see us, we have an open door policy for the local community.


Tens of thousands attend Elim churches every week.
While the congregations range from small groups to some of the largest in the UK and Ireland, all our members share a set of beliefs known as our foundational Truths.
The foundational Truths explain our theology and are a statement of faith – they are powerful, non-negotiable and guide all we say and do.

We have much going on throughout the week here at BH1 Elim. We aim to cater for every age range, every family and everyone in our local community.

We fully believe in being a light in the community, being an open door for anyone who needs us.

We run a midweek program for all the various people that we come into contact with.
