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.
