About our Elders

Jonathan Bond 


Hello and thank-you for taking the time to read this introduction to Jennyfield Evangelical Church . I suppose firstly I ought to explain who we are.


Jennyfield – This tells people where we are located; on the Jennyfield Estate, on the North side of Harrogate .

Evangelical – This simply means that we base what we believe and what we teach on the Bible. We believe that the Bible is God’s Word and that it is without fault or contradiction.

Church – We are a local group of people, many of whom love the Lord Jesus, and know God’s forgiveness in their lives. We meet together to worship God, support each other and to encourage each other as we seek to share the message of what the Bible teaches.


Our worship style is warm, genuine and Bible centred. We sing a mixture of modern and more traditional songs to help us worship God. To help us with our congregational singing we use a variety of instruments and singers.


We also attach great importance to the preaching of God’s Word. Through this we seek to help Christians grow in their understanding of and love for God; whilst for those who are not Christians we seek to point them to Jesus Christ as the only means of knowing forgiveness and reconciliation with God the Father.  


Our morning service in particular caters for younger children, containing a ‘Children’s talk’ and a separate Junior Church during the sermon. We also have a crèche during this time.


We are non-charismatic, in that we do not ordinarily expect the foundational (1st century) sign gifts to be repeated. However we do definitely believe that God does speak to His people and that He expects His people to know the truth and to let that truth shape every part of their lives.


If you would like to meet with us please come along to one of our Sunday services (10.30am and 6.00pm). If you would like to know anything else about us or simply to have a chat regarding our beliefs and practices feel free to contact me.
