VISIT ONE OF OUR CHURCHES
Our desire is that none should perish, and our strategy for reaching everyone is to start new Churches in every community. If we don’t already have an Elim Church community in your area then we want to equip and enable you to begin helping us build one.
LIBRARY OPENING TIMES
We are really pleased to be able to partner with Lincolnshire County Council and Greenwich Leisure Limited to offer library services on Birchwood and Boultham.
Ignite Church operates out of two buildings in the city of Lincoln. The Breakthrough Centres have a host of community work in them, including; libraries, community cafes, public computers, food & clothing hubs, craft groups and mentoring groups.
URBAN WAVE is our annual East Coast FIRE FESTIVAL. We spend a week at the beautiful seaside resort of Mablethorpe with live worship, special guests bringing the word of God and some light missions work.
We are pleased to be partnering with Worship Central to be able to offer a worship internship. If you have a heart for worship and already play an instrument you can contact us to arrange an informal chat.

OUR PROCESS FOR STARTING NEW CHURCHES
Begin by promoting the plan to start a new Elim Church in the community. This might look like delivering flyers, letters, or engaging in social action projects. You may find a person of peace who is for your vision and will introduce you to their network.
Begin to meet together regularly in order to discuss our launch plan and strategy to reaching the community. The plan being to reach the unchurched, the Gospel will need to be shared and responded to during this time too. Some times of prayer are required during this time too.
This is a process of getting a venue, testing your kit, and running through our attractive service. We can worship together during this time whilst also working out the kinks in our setup. We also look to connect with local authorities and other Churches & charities.
We launch with several outreach events and a Sunday evening service. Once we have a setup team in place we can move to a Sunday morning service which may be streamed in via Youtube live until we have a Pastor in place. In the meantime the Church joins in live from homes.
“We met Darren, from Ignite Church, about a month ago and since meeting with him we as a leadership team have felt massively encouraged and motivated to further grow our church and it’s ministry.”
