Cemeteries

We believe the Church does NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1961, and we understand it is still open.

Here is a simple rectangular building, built of brick with sides of four bays, and a stucco front. Lettering above the central front doorway reads "Mosborough Elim Church", and affixed to the wall above it is a cross.

According to the account of its history on Mosborough Elim Church website, it was founded in 1961 by pastor Graham Barker, and meetings were first held in an existing Mission Hall, which stood on the right of the present building. The latter had been built by the Glynn Vivian Miners' Mission in the early 1900s, but was closed by 1967, and has since been demolished.

Intriguingly, whilst looking at today's building, it is possible to see the north side of Mosborough Methodist Church in Chapel Street - notably, its north transept, with its rose window - and the rear of its Church Hall, in Cadman Street. This was probably not possible originally, when the Miners' Welfare building was still standing.

Elim Church is recorded in the list of Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) as an "Elim Pentecostal Church" with a congregation (somewhat prosaically) belonging to "Elim Pentecostal Churches".

Denomination

Now or formerly Elim Pentecostal.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
