near Chapelfield Gardens, recently celebrated its 50th anniversary in the current building. It has also recently appointed a new pastor, Rev Adam James
Adam follows in the footsteps of retiring minister Gerry Turner,
who was at Elim for the past 17 years. Adam said: “Gerry's ministry has been greatly appreciated and he has left a wonderful church.
-born, Adam moved to Great Yarmouth
to work with his father in the ministry, where he met his wife Rachel
, before going to Bible College.
In 2004 he entered the Elim ministry, first pastoring in St Helens
and then Knottingley
However, Adam and Rachel began to feel a stirring to move back to their roots last September andconsequently they decided to move to Norwich in January this year to pastor Norwich Elim Church
Adam and Rachel have three young girls and are excited about being back in Norfolk for God.
“I have a heart for the lost and long to see the church come alive with the good news and love of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit,” said Adam. “I hope to see the church in Norwich become even more of a light in the community.”
