Christian Prayer Ministries
Christian Prayer Ministries is a non-residential charity and is one of two ministries in the UK based on the Circle of God's Love and Four Areas of Brokenness formulated by Anne White back in the 1960s. This ministry has been present in our country since then.
With a strong emphasis on Member accountability and participation, 200 members, divided into five active regions, carry out healing prayer to the whole person, either through individual ministry in homes or through church based courses.
Training for accreditation is long and thorough, involving participation in at least ten prayer ministry appointments (acting as lead minister in at least four) and attendance at two residential training courses.
With an increasing culture gap developing between our country's different generations, we are currently trying out new styles of courses, based less on an 'I speak, you listen' approach, and more on participation in group work and use of video clips and extracts from TV programmes.
TEACHING | MINISTRY
Ellel Ministries is a non-denominational Christian ministry that began in England in 1986. It is now established in over 25 countries around the world with 5 centres in the UK and Ireland. It exists to bring God's healing love to those who are struggling with life's issues, and to provide extensive training for those seeking to minister effectively to others. Ellel Ministries is committed to both healing and discipleship, recognising that these are two sides of the same coin. God is in the business of restoring His people and equipping them to fulfil their destiny as true disciples of Jesus.
Guild of Health & St. Raphael
The Guild of Health & St. Raphael is an ecumenical, inclusive and prayerful group working locally and nationally in the Christian healing ministry. Taking theology seriously, we reach out to both policy makers and those on the ground to spread the Good News about healing and holistic living. Working with key partners and through publications and events, we aim to be the premier academic point of contact for science, religion and healing, while also providing resources for education and parish based healing ministry. As an organisation we aim to: bring together Christians, including medical health care professionals and ministers of religion, in pursuit of holistic health in mind, body and spirit; enable members to study the interaction between physical, mental and spiritual factors in well-being through conferences, publications and other educational endeavours; sustain and strengthen by prayer and sacrament people who are sick or suffering in any way, and all those who minister to them; help everyone realise that as members of Christ's family we have access to an abundance of life and are called to share this Good news with the world. We support local healing groups, publish academic journals and magazines, organise local and national events and partner with key organisations and support agencies.
Healing Church Wounds
A resource for working with churches to explore the issues and legacies
which prevent them from moving forward and growing in mission.
Some of the key elements in this process are:
§ An all inclusive dialogue with the congregation and leaders focussing upon the most important issues and stories currently shaping the church.
§ Facilitating a disciplined listening ethos to this process.
§ Employing Professional Church Listeners.
§ Enabling an outcome of renewal and restoration of a healthy church life and witness.
