Pastor Emmanuel and his wife Christine


I am Emmanuel Nelson and together with my wife Christine we pastor the Elim Church Brockley. We have been pastoring this particular branch for about 20 years, firstly under the leadership of Rev. Sam Larbie, and now autonomously. Prior to that, just after completing Bible college training at Regents Theological College, I served as Assistant Pastor in Elim Leyton for 4 years under the then Regional Superintendent Mervyn Tilley. We are blessed with two wonderful children, Joseph and Gabrielle.

The Church is not the building, it's the people, it's not just the gathering, its also the scattering...

John Wimber

“Now those who were scattered went about preaching the word.”

Acts 8:4
