Holy Communion with Healing Ministry.

healing ministry

The Vicar, the Revd Jennifer Croft has taught the healing ministry to a number of churches and has been involved in this ministry for many years. Here at St Cuthberts we pray for the healing and wholeness of all people. This means that we believe that God can heal us physically, emotionally or spiritually – so that we strive for wholeness and wellbeing. In this service, upon returning to our seats after receiving communion, there is the option of receiving healing ministry through the gentle laying of the hands upon the head. We use a set prayer, so that everyone receives the same prayer. As a result, you may feel better physically, you might feel a sense of peace, joy or warmth.

Sometimes, we have a negative image or a fear of healing services because we expect something dramatic to happen(!) However, here at St Cuthberts we believe that the Holy Spirit, who heals us, works in a very gentle way and can heal the body, mind or soul. Only God knows where we need the healing the most, and through His ministers, He sends down His Holy Spirit to give us healing. For example, we might feel burdened by something, but through these prayers, it may lift and we can feel better immediately.

**Healing Ministry is complimentery and should not be used as an alternative to, or in opposition to, any ongoing medical treatments.

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!
