Deeper Healing Days
Deeper healing is the experience in which the Holy Spirit restores health to the deepest areas of our lives by dealing with the root cause of our hurt and pain.

Many of us continue to recycle or repeat hurts we have received over the years.  A Deeper Healing Day enables us to be listened to and prayed with in order to bring release and peace through prayer.  It is not counselling but is an opportunity to be listened to, listen to ourselves and God in a safe and welcoming place where confidentiality will be respected.

We will do our best to create a safe place, a quiet place, a place to assist your own healing journey.  You will never be asked to do anything that will make you feel uncomfortable.

During the morning each person sees one of the prayer ministry team for up to an hour.  After you have been seen you may want to reflect on what has been shared – to read or just enjoy the space and rest awhile.

In the afternoon you will meet again with your prayer minister and other members of the team who will pray with you.  Team members may receive a scripture verse or some helpful words but only you can tell if these are relevant to your own situation.  The day will finish with worship.

Numbers are very limited for Deeper Healing Days and the full cost will be required to ensure your place.  There is sometimes a waiting list.

Quiet Days – Lunch and refreshments provided

Quiet Days on different themes include worship, some input and silence to enjoy the space in the house and garden.

All these days run from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm. Numbers are limited.

Use of the House and grounds for individuals or groups

Individuals or groups are welcome to spend time in the house or garden rooms, for retreat and quiet space, groups can  also request facilitation by the chaplain. Spaces for individuals are available every week day except Thursdays;  Spaces for groups are available on the same days and on Saturdays.
