Healing Service with Holy Eucharist



What is a Healing Service?

The Service looks like other church gatherings with Bible teaching, singing and fellowship. But the keynote is the personal prayer available to anyone who asks.

Prayer is the Bible’s word for speaking to God. It is through asking God for healing that God responds to us. Prayer is an expression of our trust that God will meet all our needs. He has shown his love for us and that our relationship has been restored by giving his Son Jesus to pay for our sins.

Labyrinth Walk 

Sunday-February 2,2020

3:00pm-5:00pm

                               
                                Candlemas Labyrinth Walk 

On day of celebration of the Presentation of the baby Jesus in the Temple. When t wo aged and holy people, Simeon and Anna, saw Jesus in Mary’s arms, they knew exactly who he was. Simeon burst into song with what has become known as the Nunc dimittis or the Song of Simeon (Luke 2:29-32). Since the Fourth Century it has been sung or said at Evening Prayer. Traditionally this event is marked by processing with candles while chanting the Nunc dimittis. We will meditate on this Epiphany of Jesus as Simeon describes, and walk the labyrinth by candlelight.


What is a Labyrinth Walk?
Taking a labyrinth walk is a modern revival of an ancient spiritual custom. The labyrinth, a winding one-way path which leads walkers into and back out of a central space, offers a kind of body meditation which parallels the inner journey of prayer and reflection.
