Healing ministry

Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.’           2 Corinthians 4:16

Prayer is central to the Healing Ministry, and Intercessions – where we pray for others - are an important part of our church service. Intercession is about holding people about whom we are concerned and who we love before God during their times of need. We ask that God’s healing love be poured onto and into that person or situation.

There is a Prayer Board at the back of the church where people can request prayers for those in need.

The church’s Healing Ministry is complementary to the work of your doctor. We believe that both are needed to restore health.

  • Healing is about Wholeness

    • We all have bodies, minds, emotions, feelings and a spirit. We can be unwell in any of these areas, and often in several, as they are all interconnected and intertwined.

  • Healing is wider than Cure

    • We may not be physically made well but we may experience relief from our symptoms, peace of mind or the ability to accept our condition.

  • Healing and Wholeness are what God wants for us

    • God never fails to respond to our request for Healing but only He knows what is best for us and those we love. His response may be different from what we had expected.

  • Jesus met people at their point of need and healed them. It was central to his Ministry.

  • Jesus commanded his disciples to continue his Healing Ministry. The Church continues to do so.

  • Jesus forgave others. Forgiveness is Healing. God’s forgiveness is not dependent on our repentance but leads us to recognise our need to do so. The Gospel is concerned with the release from guilt and reconciliation.

  • The Church’s Healing Ministry is complementary to the work of the doctor. Both are needed to build and to restore health.
