The Rector writes ’Welcome to our preacher Lydia Monds who is the Ministry Director of the Churches Ministry of Healing (CMH:I) As most of you are aware, in our parish we have a dedicated team of Prayer Ministers and I am delighted that Lydia came to us to do a refresher course last night.
We look forward to hearing from Lydia this morning about this important ministry. Our readings are the appointed readings for the feast day of St Luke (18th October). You will find the service of Wholeness & Healing on page 457 of our Prayer Book.
Towards the end of the service, there will be an opportunity to come to the altar rails for laying on of hands and anointing. Some prayer ministers will remain after the service ends so if you would like to have one of the team discreetly pray with you, please remain on after the Service.
If you would like to know more about any aspect of the Healing Prayer ministry in the parish, please speak with me or with any of the team (Revd Richard, Hilary Dring, Simon Woodworth, Kay Tracey, Peter Coughlan, Joy Keefe & Hilary Warren-Perry).’
