Elim Botany Expansion

Elim Christian Centre is a Multi Campus church with seven campus locations (soon to be eight!) in Auckland and Whangarei. They are a contemporary, multi-cultural and multi-generational church with a vision to be a centre of hope, to reach, serve and influence communities.

Elim’s main campus in Botany was planted 35 years ago by Pastors Luke and Marilyn Brough. The church has a strong focus on Christian education and have their own Christian school in three campus locations, alongwith tertiary training through Elim Leadership College.

Elim Botany is a busy place throughout the week. Hundreds and sometimes thousands of people come through the facilities almost daily.‘Outside of the daily school activities and weekend church services, we run a number of programmes, ministries, courses and community initiatives from Monday to Sunday,’ says Elim Botany Pastor Steven Green. ‘These include healing rooms, CAP debt centre, Elim music for toddlers, women’s ministry, youth ministry,food bank, Alpha and more.’

The church has recently begun making room for more at their Botany campus. ‘Christian Savings has worked with us to bring about much needed expansion of facilities to accommodate our growing congregation.’

‘Christian Savings has been a huge support to us in the expansion of our Botany church facilities. It is becoming increasingly difficult for churches to work with traditional banks; they just don't really understand our business.’

‘Christian Savings gets it. They have looked beyond just this project and become a great partner to us for the majority of our lending. They also have the knowledge and expertise to work with you on your capital project and help find solutions. If you are a church looking for finance for a capital project, make a conversation with Christian Savings your next step!’
