Healing on the Streets, originally conceived by Mark Marx in Northern Ireland, has been running since 2014. He described it this way:
“Healing on the Streets is a simple but beautiful way to reach out to the lost and hurting on the streets of your town or city. It enables you to connect with your community every week, powerfully expressing God’s love in the market place, whatever the weather.”
We offer prayer twice a month in the city centre, for healing or anything else. And God works through that prayer!
We have had many encouraging stories over the years of God touching and healing people. Some have come to faith; others come back to us weeks or months later to share the real difference prayer has made in their lives.
When do you meet?
Healing on the Streets runs on the 2nd & 4th Saturdays every month, from 12pm-1:30pm. We always operate in teams, usually of 6 or more from several churches – and we always pray for people in pairs. Our team is headed up by Angus & Sally Ormes.
What training do your team get?
We provide training to ensure that all team members adhere to the model. This includes:
- avoiding religious jargon
- introducing ourselves by name
- not touching the person without permission,
- showing them respect,
- watching and praying (eyes open!),
- taking authority in the name of Jesus over the illness/condition disclosed,
- asking for feedback.
Can I join you?
Yes, we’d love that! You’ll just need to attend a training session. Get in touch with us to book a time.
Alternatively, if you’re not sure yet, come and see what it’s like. You can shadow an experienced member of the team for a session.
