Between 2008 and 2016 You will see that I have tried to provide an extensive website on the life of two great Men of God. And the history of the Bible Pattern church fellowship during its existence in the UK. Sadly it seems to only a few churches which still exist. 

have tried taking you on a whistle stop trip around the world to the places, stories, pictures, sounds and lives of people who will tell you the story about my Great Great Uncle George (principle, or prince to those close to him) and Stephen Jeffreys. 

have put the site together in any particular order at this stage. But I tried to give you as much information as possible from as many places and people as possible. 

Sadly I have reached 2019, and have had little feedback or additional articles or information to add to my own research. I know it has helped a few students doing research and some folk who attended a Bible Pattern church. I am glad for the help it has been to you. 

I have paused my research which was primary for my own interest and whilst doing so shared what I found for the benefit and interest of yourselves.  

For the future, I will keep the Blog and Facebook page live. Please feel free to send me any information (Via the comment boxes in each article on the blog, and I will reply or share with others according to your wishes).  pictures or stories that you would like to share as we endeavour to bring glory to Almighty God for the great things he has and is still doing through the legacy of two faithful Men: endeavouring to share the greatest news in the world, the good news of the Gospel of salvation through The Lord Jesus Christ.

Stephen Jeffreys (1876-1943).

Stephen Jeffreys (1876-1943).

Stephen Jeffreys was born and raised in the valleys of South Wales, in a typical minning home. He went to work in the coal mines at the age of 12. He led a very typical mining lifestyle until 1904 when the great Welsh revival invaded those mines. For several days he was under deep conviction of sin and very sad. Other men working with him had been converted and filled with the joy of the Lord. Finally he came to Christ and became a totally changed man, he was aged 28. That year Wales was filled with the glory of God and new converts. Immediately he joined himself to Gods people, attending all prayer meetings and especially all open air meetings. He soon started preaching in the open air with great fire and passion. He continued working in the mines for some years as he became a witness and testimony to all. This is how God prepared His servant.

As far as Pentecostal things go, he had no time for them and even for a time preached against 'tongues'. But later being convinced this outpouring was of God he himself sought the same blessing of God. It was during special meetings, that he received his Baptism in the Holy Ghost accompanied with tongues. He had a mighty experience, and this made the difference in his life as a witness, he considered it an epoch in his life. He was invited a second time to hold a three day Gospel campaign near Swansea in 1913. When he was leaving the mine to go preach he turned to a friend and said, "Well, Billy, if God blesses me this time, I shall never return to the coal-mine." God did bless, these meetings continued for several weeks, with about 145 souls turning to Christ, bodies healed and a number of believers who had spoken in tongues. During these beginnings his brother George was found by his side in ministry. This was just the beginning of pioneer evangelism for him, he would enter towns where only a few people would turn up, but would pray, preach and persevere until a break came. In the early days he had prayed for the sick but seen few healed. But that changed the day a young girl diseased in both feet who was under threat of amputation sent for him to come pray. He anointed her with oil and laid hands on her in the name of Jesus, instantly she was healed and that night testified in the meeting. Great faith came into his heart to believe God for greater things still.
In 1913 men like Cecil Polhill and A.A.Boddy hearing about these early campaigns came to see for themselves. While talking personally with Boddy, these two Brothers made known their passion and burden to see the ministry of the Evangelist raised up in the young Pentecostal movement and to see it grow by soul winning. As a result the testimonies of the meetings were reported in such publications as Confidence and of course invitations came to preach elsewhere. Stephen's great burden was Wales, after holding a campaign in Llanelli, he decided to settle there, raise up a work and use it for a base for the next seven years. During that time he would head of on short trips, often to struggling missions to help break ground. Shortly after he came to Llanelli, on a Sunday night in July 1914 as he preached, there appeared on the wall behind him as it were a vision, all could see it, only when Stephen finished preaching did he go and sit down and also saw it. First it was a picture of a lamb which then turned to the appearance of the face of Christ as the man of sorrows. This lasted for about six hours with many hundreds being witness to it. Those who were at first sceptics tried everything to explain it but finally had to confess it was God. Two weeks later he preached on Christ as the "Man of sorrows", that week the First World War broke out lasting for the next five years.
In 1919 a powerful move of God took place under his ministry in Aberaman, when he arrived it was a fellowship of nine believers, when he left it had over 300 believers. Then to London at the invitation of Polhill and again God bore witness to His word with mighty conversions and miracles. In 1922 he joined the Elim Pentecostal Alliance and pastured their first Church in Britain. Together with his brother they filled the largest and most famous halls in the land. In 1924 He was in Canada and America for several months of ministry with his brother, then back to Britain. In about 1926 He left Elim and became the pioneer evangelist for the young AoG, holding mighty campaigns throughout Britain establishing this new movement and giving it an evangelistic thrust. When he visited Parr’s Church, 50 believeers sat in a 600 seater building, when he left it was bunged. He then took a world tour covering New Zealand, Austraila, south Africa and America arriving back in 1931. At this time his son who had travelled and ministered with him in the 20's, came to the fore in the 30's with the same ministry. In 1933 he had the great privilege to minister in Sweden at Lewi Pethrus’s Church and in Norway at T.B.Barratt’s Church.
This fearless and tireless, rugged preacher who was often said to be like one of the Old Testament Prophets, had worn himself out in abundant labours. Quite suddenly he came to a standstill with failing health. Crippled with arthritis he spent his last days in his beloved Wales, preaching his last message just one month before he died in 1943. In those last days, friends and family stood grieved as they looked upon his form, frail and bent and hands twisted by arthritis which once were laid boldly on the sick. Truly he was known as 'The beloved Evangelist'.

I am thrilled to be able to share the news that




THIS IS A MUST READ FOR EVERY PENTECOSTAL OR NON PENTECOSTAL CHRISTIAN. It has a question and answer section at the back. Sadly there is much misunderstanding in the church today about this subject; there is also a misuse of the gifts in operation in the local church which is casing many to avoid this part of the believer’s life. I have no financial gain promoting these books, I only seek to convey the truth of God’s word and provide recourses to equip the family of God in the last days.

This book is subtitled 'The Baptism and Gifts of the Holy Spirit.' It is an essential teaching for the church of every age!

It is my option that this is one of the best balanced books on the subject of 'The Baptism and Gifts of the Holy Spirit and the fruit of the Holy Spirit'. Principle George Jeffreys uses his experience as the principle of the Elim Bible collage to compare the different schools of thought and explain the Elim/ Bible Pattern view in a very balanced way.

Format: Digital facsimile, pdf, 277pp

Did George Jeffreys marry? Also do you know where his grave is located?

Dear xxxx Thank you for your question
In answer to your first question no George Jeffreys did not ever marry, he did have a housekeeper who married after George Jeffries Died. George Jeffries had a policy of being totally sold out to the Lords work and some other members followed this policy, which allowed them complete devotion to being able to travel in the extensive way that they did around the UK and around the world. My Mother knew George Jeffries housekeeper well, she was very protective of folk just turning up at his home in Clapham London. One day Reinhard Bonnke turned up and was almost turned away except the Principle heard the conversation at the door and welcomed Reinhard Bonnke in and prayed for him.

After George Jeffries death, members of the revival party did marry despite being older men!  No doubt you will remember what the Bible says about    1 Corinthians 7:32-33King James Version (KJV)

32 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:
33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife. Some very hurtful remarks suggested George Jeffries may have been gay due to not marring. Nevertheless, my mother who had very close access to Him and his fellow workers and pastors would have found these remarks deeply offensive and untrue. I believe the scripture above would explain his view of why he remained single. When George Jeffries died, he was totally exhausted and spent from his extensive work for the Lord from his extensive crusades, the establishment of the Elim denomination and the sad split and formation of the Bible Patten church.
In answer to your second question I have visited George Jeffries grave in Streatham London. I was able to find it incredibly thanks to some pictures from the copy of the Bible Pattern magazine.

Please excuse the detailed reply; it is rare these days that folk take any interest. Much of what I have shared and be researched and confirmed in many of the articles found on the website using the search engine. I hope this information helps.

Stephen Jeffreys. The Beloved Evangelist Hardcover

     Stephen Jeffreys. The Beloved Evangelist Hardcover – 1946                     

Sunday, 27 December 2015


As you have seen at the lower part of this web page, I have spent many hours obtaining scanning and making freely availible pictures of the Jeffreys brothers and the meeting they conducted.

Many of these can now also be seen on Google images. I have not restricted there use so that they can be seen by as many folk as possible.

During the last year I am of the belief that Elim have used some of these pictures. Dispite this I have never been contacted to ask permission or given any acknowledgment.

Elim have shared some pictures on their website using Instagram, Sadley this only allows you to view the picture. I have copied the following weblinks so that you can view them whilst they can still be viewed.

You will see that some of the pictures are quite historic.

Some of the pictures can be seen in a Book produced by Elim celebrating 100 years.

I am sorry for not making the web sites below weblinks, I am sure you will see the large number of them would have taken a great deal of time. You will need open a spare tab next to this website and Copy each web address below and paste them into the address bar to access each picture.

I cannot promise how long thses websites will be active as they have all been created by Elim.
