Healing Ministry

Jesus' earthly ministry included healing people. The church continues this today, by intercessory prayer and in the way usually described as ‘prayer ministry'. This follows practice of the early church, recorded in James, by 'praying with laying on of hands and anointing with oil in the name of the Lord'. This is part of the Thursday Communion Service at St Andrew's.

At each Service at St Alban's it will also be offered. Two persons will be available at the end of the Service to pray with people, either for themselves or a loved one. Confidentiality is an important aspect of this, and anointing with oil is an option in this prayer time.

You can talk more about this ministry with any of the priests.
