Services for 2015/16 will be held in St. Nicholas Church, Guisborough, usually on the 1st Wednesday in the month at 7.00pm.
The Christian Healing Ministry
It can be said that the ministry of healing is as old as creation itself. That’s because healing springs from the loving purposes of God who works for the good of all within creation.
Is it any wonder then that healing played such a big part in our Lord’s ministry, and that he charged his Church with the two fold task of preaching the Gospel and healing the sick.
But then of course we can say that the Churches mission is in its entirety one of ‘healing’. Sin causes disorder and fragmentation both to individuals and communities, and Christ’s redeeming work is essentially one of restoring wholeness in a sick and broken world.
Within the Gospel as you well know we find many instances of healing, and then under the surface we find a deeper meaning to the miracle, a meaning that goes beyond purely our physical health and well being.
It is my belief that we are all in need of healing, healing of body, mind and spirit. Those who have experienced this kind of service, find it very helpful to their own individual journey with God, as well as with each other. To pray for each other in this way is very moving, as well as being a privilege. It is a service to which we can come with either our own needs or the needs of others on our hearts.
If you or anyone you know is in need of prayer then please let me know. This can either go on the pew sheet, or if you wish can be held in confidence, as I also have a confidential list of people I pray for. Please feel free to ask.
Next Healing Service is on Wednesday 7th June 2017 at 7.00pm.
