from the heart


outside the box
finding creativity


The Harbour Church is a relaxed, thriving congregation that meets together in worship and prayer to seek God's presence and guidance here in Falmouth. With a strong sense that church continues beyond a meeting within four walls on a Sunday morning, Harbour makes an effort to build an effective evangelical community and missional presence within our surrounding area in Cornwall.

The meetings of the Harbour Church are intended to be a fresh expression of church and seek to create 'spaces', not programmes, to encourage a relational, organic expression of Christian life.

Vision and Direction

Since its foundation the Harbour Church has sought to be a place of refuge, repair, renewal, rescue and ultimately a centre of mission - 'a harbour for all'. It seeks to be the vehicle through which God's Kingdom can 'break in', through the proclamation of the Good News of Jesus and the working of God's Spirit.  The Harbour Church, seeks to be true to the aims and purposes of the Christian faith, as taught by Jesus; Jesus' teaching being best summed up in the 'Two Great Commandments' (Matthew 22:37-40) and the 'Great Commission' (Matthew 28:19-20). The Harbour Church holds these to be central to its direction and purpose in Falmouth and beyond.

About Elim

The Elim Pentecostal Church is a growing Movement of more than 550 Christian congregations in the UK and Ireland. Elim was founded in 1915 by George Jeffreys, a young Christian from Maesteg in South Wales. Jeffreys and a group of friends, known as the Elim Evangelistic Band, preached, started churches and witnessed a move of God that was characterised by miraculous healings and an explosion in the number of people becoming Christians.  There are a number of Elim Chuches in Cornwall : Camborne, Penzance, Perranporth, Lostwithiel , Redruth, Launceston, Newquay, St. Ives


The current Harbour Church in Falmouth was founded in September 2010. There has however been an Elim church in the town for many years. The orignal church was born out of a revival in Falmouth in 1935. Three locations in the town seemed to be the focal point of the revival. Malin's Hall, the Co-op Hall and the Drill Hall. The Co-op hall is no longer in existence, but the other 2 halls can still be seen today.  The church eventually moved to Draceana Avenue (where the Assemblies of God church meets today) where it met for many years, before closing in 1990s.  The revived work has been part of the wider re-establishment of a number of Elim churches in Cornwall.


'Vertical' is a music led continuous worship and creative 'event' run by Harbour Church.  The Vertical event seeks to create space and time for worship that is not limited by the constraints of a normal church programme. It is for those who wish to press in, go deeper, and find freedom and release in God's presence; to enjoy God and pursue true intimacy.  Vertical has taken place quarterly, at various locations in and around Falmouth, including the beach, the Fish Factory and the Bedouin Lounge.  Please click here to find out more and discover when the next Vertical is to be held.
