1st Saturday of the month, 10am – 12 noon
Welcome to St Erkenwald’s Church – Oasis Healing Centre
We love God and love seeing people touched by His love and His power.
Why Healing Prayer?
The Bible shows us clearly that Jesus healed people and He gave His followers authority to do the same; we love Jesus and love praying for people. We believe God is our loving Father and that His heart is for all people to be well, living free from sickness and disease. God doesn’t cause or desire that people are unwell or sick.
We are not practicing medicine and we are unable to dispense medical advice. We want to work alongside the medical profession. Please do not stop or change any prescribed medication or other forms of treatment you are currently receiving without consulting your doctor or relevant practitioner. You will be asked to sign an acknowledgement that you remain responsible for your own health.
What can I expect?
Our aim is to create a joyful environment where you will feel the presence and the peace of God. You are invited to enjoy being in the environment for a while before we pray for you; our experience is that some people are healed simply in the atmosphere of God’s presence.
Let God speak to you through colour, texture, sight, sound, smell and words. Feel free to sing, draw, dance or just ‘be’ in God’s presence. Laughter is an aspect of joy, and it’s good medicine. If people around you are laughing it will be because of joy, not a lack of compassion.
Team members will ask you if you are ready to receive prayer. They will help find a comfortable place to pray, maybe even where you are currently. Please let then know for what you would like prayer. Please feel free to stat after you’ve been prayed for – in fact we recommend this. Of course, you are free to leave whenever you feel it appropriate.
Some people get healed instantly (even without prayer) some as they leave the building, some over the next few hours and some gradually. If there are no obvious signs of healing after you’ve been prayed for, we would like to think you will leave with a sense of being loved and cared for. We would encourage you to come back in the future for more prayer. We would also encourage you to believe that your healing is coming and not to doubt.
If you are still not sure, why don’t you ‘Come and Taste it!’ No appointment necessary.
