HEALING PRAYER 

When we pray for physical healing, we are responding to the scripture "Is anyone of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord." (James 5:14)

We give thanks to God that skilled medical professionals with their abundance of knowledge, are indispensable parts of modern life. Yet, we believe that Jesus is still the great Physician and Healer. The Healing Prayer Team is growing in their knowledge and education to aid them in their call to pray for those seeking physical, emotional and spiritual healing.

Lay people, who are called, committed and trained to pray for physical, emotional and spiritual healing with those who seek it carry out this ministry. We seek to provide a safe and confidential setting in the church where people can come to receive personal prayer with a team of two or three healing prayer ministers. Healing prayer teams are now available on the fourth Sunday of the month and on any Sunday when requested.

We welcome your testimonies of healing. They will encourage and bless us all!

TAIZÉ PRAYER SERVICE

Join us in this beautiful historic church for the mystery of worship using candles, chants and silence as "windows" through which we all may more deeply experience the Presence of God. The worship of a Taizé Prayer Service is marked by depth and simplicity based on the form of liturgy known as "The Prayer" developed by the ecumenical brothers of Taizé monastic community in France. In an atmosphere of candlelight and singing, the service offers as opportunity to meditate and experience peace and an uplifting of spirit. Silence is a central part of the service. The beauty of the sanctuary of the Nicholas Chapel offers the perfect setting for such a service. A Taizé Prayer Service feels comfortable the very first time you attend because of its simplicity. The service is held on the Saturday preceeding the first Sunday of each month at 8.am in the Nicholas Chapel.  (Each Saturday during Advent and Lent).  It is followed by breakfast of home-made bread and marmalade.  Everyone welcome.  For further information contact Diana Day 01245 420124
