Healing and Wholeness

We affirm God's heart is for human flourishing and wellbeing.

We believe that Jesus passionately desires every person to be transformed through experiencing his truth, love and tender care.

We read in the Gospels of him being moved with compassion and bringing healing, wholeness, release, reconciliation and restoration in all sorts of amazing ways to people from all walks of life; of him meeting each one at their point of need, bringing freedom and transformation, light and life.

We believe Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever and that he commissions us with such amazing words as 'Freely you have received, freely give.'

Many opportunities for prayer are available. These include simple Services of Healing and Wholeness where, in the context of worship, we celebrate the grace of God who desires wholeness of body, mind and spirit for all people, as well as the healing of communities and relationships.

In a service of healing, we focus on this aspect of God’s character. We bring our own frailty and brokenness – felt not just in physical illness, but in guilt, anxiety, and all the burdens which weigh us down.

We also bring our concerns for others and for the world. Above all, we come to God who knows our needs before we ask, and whose love revealed in Jesus Christ is stronger than suffering and death.
