Learning To Heal

DownloadWe will be running a free six week 'Learning To Heal' course starting on Monday 18 February at 7.30pm (venue to be confirmed). When Jesus brought the Kingdom of God, he combined his preaching with demonstrations of power, healing the sick and casting out demons. From the beginning, he involved his disciples in sharing the same ministry-and the commission hasn’t changed! To be a disciple of Jesus is to become more like him in every way. For too long that simple truth has been neglected and sharing of the gospel reduced to the passing of words alone. This six week course is aimed at equipping individuals and churches in the practice of praying for others in the power of the Spirit, demonstrating the Kingdom of God in works as well as words. Anyone interested in learning more about prayer & healing ministry is invited to join the course. A sign up sheet is available at the back of church or email
