Sunday 26th September

The entire aspect of Jesus’ ministry was to heal. To reconcile humanity to God by overcoming the separation caused by human sin was achieved at Calvary on Good Friday.

One third of the Gospel stories about Jesus involve his other acts of healing. The removal of disease was another sign of the establishment of the Kingdom of God.Healing services have often been separated from “normal” Sunday Worship. But Sunday Worship with its confession, listening to God’s word and Holy Communion are all on the same track of making us whole as a community and as individuals.

So on  as part of our “normal” Sunday Worship, there will be an opportunity for those who wish to do so to be prayed for during the service. This will take place in the Memorial Chapel at St Mary’s during Administration of Communion and so will not impact on the “normal” Sunday Service.

Your views on this will be sought afterwards in a questionnaire to be given or sent to you to determine whether this is the best way to make available this ministry of wholeness.

See the forthcoming Sept Lavant Magazine and listen to the semon preached on 22 Aug which is on the Church Website for further details. The Rector
