There does not appear to be many Christian Healing Ministries in Cumbria, either
that, or their light is being kept under a bushel.
A surf across the web produced only one Christian Healing Centre, but dozens of centres
that according to the Holy Scripture are associated with the occult and should be
steered clear of.
The lack of Christian based healing ministries in our region is an observation that
needs to be addressed.
Cumbria needs Christian healing centres.
Meanwhile we recommend self help. When God created the Heavens and the earth and
made man, He did not to create a concrete jungle. God knew what was good for man
- it was the Garden of Eden. It was nature. It was trees and flowers and grasses
and all kinds of wild life and birds and beasts and fresh air and running water and
lakes and let’s not forget the fabulous coastline of Cumbria. Think about it?
Places such as the Windermere Centre and Rydal Hall, sometimes have a Healing based
event in their programme.
Thanks to the ministry of Bishop Graham, the Anglican Healing Ministry in Cumbria
has gone up a gear in recent years, however you would not think so by exploring their
web site. This is not a criticism, it is an observation that the Anglicans should
address, because ‘healing’ is important. Try Anglican Healing Ministry
There is nothing I can presently find in Catholicism in Cumbria that is specifically
addressing the need for healing accept for
This is not a criticism, it is an observation. Obviously there are the daily prayers
for the sick at each Mass, however, my observations are that such an item on the
Mass liturgy is skimmed over, as much of all Christian services are rushed through,
accept for the homily and in fifteen years I have heard precious few sermons on the
power of healing in any Christian church. However, sermons do help us to keep on
the straight and narrow, and such discipline is helpful towards the prevention of
the need for healing.
A very busy bunch of lovely folk doing good works as the Catholics and Anglicans
are. Methodism has traditionally had its roots in the Word of God and so their lifestyles
are such as to avoid many of the pitfalls that require ‘healing’. This is not meant
to be patronising. Of all the denominations, I have found the Methodists to be the
friendliest folk to be amongst and their services and songs are to my liking. However,
as regards specific ‘healing’ ministry, their appears not to be any. Perhaps you
can find it, try www.cumbriamethodists.org.uk
Charismatic, Pentecostal and Independent Church Community
Most, if not all such churches have people involved in the healing ministries and
the laying on off hands for healing.
One can usually ask for such a ‘service’ at the end of a meeting and it is often
a part of a the worship meeting.
Most towns have independent Charismatic and Pentecostal Churches.
I have been blessed by much of my experience with the independent charismatic and
Pentecostal, ‘born again’ type churches, however, I recommend that you consider this
warning before proceeding.
The open-ness and free worship and promotion of the gifts of the Spirit do lay open
such churches to the infiltration of un healthy influences.
