A healing service, with the laying on of hands on Sunday 25th October at 10am

This will be a family Communion service, but it will also have ‘low-key’ healing ministry present.  The prayer ministers will voluntarily gently lay hands on heads, and a pre-prepared set prayer will be used, on anyone who would like to receive healing – whether in the body, mind or spirit.  We believe that when we call upon the name of Jesus, in the power of Holy Spirit, He hears our prayers and petitions.  Come and find the living Jesus Christ in the Holy Communion and through his healing presence.

All ages and all are welcome

Harvest Festival: Sunday 27th September at 10am

This years harvest charity is: Toilet twinning

This year, the Ministry Team have opted to support a new charity, which is just 5 years old. But it does enable our raised funds to build toilets or latrines for those in the developing countries. These are paramount to people living hygienic lives and with enough money we could either fund a block of toilets for a school, or a community/village toilet. The charity then send us a framed picture of our building, to be displayed in our church toilets! It’s innovative, it’s fun but more importantly, it adds health and basic hygiene to peoples’ lives – something that we all take for granted.

Please support our 2015 Harvest Charity!

Ordinands at Teesport

The Ordinands from Cranmer Hall, Revd Dominic Black and tutor Revd Jennifer Croft spent a day at Teesport visiting the Chaplaincy work of the Mission to Seafarers.  We enjoyed a trip on the Harbour Master’s boat through the port (which is much bigger than you anticipate).

 

 

 

Cranmer Hall Ordinands in the Parish

From the 7th June, for two weeks, we are hosting ten Ordinands (trainee Vicars!) from Cranmer Hall, Durham. They are on placements at Easter Side, Eston & Normanby, Linthorpe, North Ormesby and South Bank. It has been a delight to have these talented people working amongst our parishes in Middlesbrough.
