It is vital in this day and age that the ordinary Churches of our land rediscover an expectant, sensible, scriptural healing ministry.   Our Lord commanded it, our nation needs it, and the Church will not be obedient or relevant without it. (The Right Revd Bishop John Parry)

This is Abbie's testimony.

I was diagnosed with coeliac disease 12 and a half years ago. Coeliac disease for me meant that if I ate any gluten I would be violently sick and have diarrhoea for several days. The treatment is to follow a gluten free diet which is what I did. 

I believe that God heals but the nature of my extreme reaction to gluten made me reluctant to go for prayer as the only way to know I had been healed would be to eat gluten. So I perhaps quite boldly said to God very early on “ When you heal me it will need to come via a word from someone who doesn’t know me”. 

Our church believes in healing and we have had lots of teaching on it, My husband Ben and I heard of a day course being held locally and our church sent us on it expectantly.

On the morning of the course full of faith we took photos of my swollen ankle and arm that is not straight in the hope of receiving healing of that and rheumatoid arthritis.

The course was amazing we had teaching and demonstrations which were opportunities to be prayed for I did have prayer for my ankle and RA.

After lunch Paul Skelton one of the leaders said he had some words for people and pointed at me and said Gods healing you from Coeliac disease ! Wow exactly as I had asked God to do it I was amazed and to be honest a little nervous because I knew what I would have to do next!

On the way home Ben said to me “right are we going to Tesco on the way home then?”   Only he knew what I had said to God and when I’d told him I said that the thing I wanted to eat and missed most was a jam doughnut.

So that’s what we did I must be honest and say that I was still very apprehensive but determined to act in faith on the word that had been spoken to me.

I ate it and was absolutely fine and 2 months or more on I have not had any of the nasty symptoms that I used to get and am regularly enjoying lots of foods that had been off the menu for years Praise God !

Fay reports on the Chapels Latest Healing Service
Healing Service 28th September, 2019

As usual there was hardly a vacant seat.  Terry Watson conducted a wonderful Service giving testimonies of Healings that he has been involved in over the years and at the end of the Service many people came up for prayer.

I received a Testimony from a Steven Clark a few days after the Service which read:-

This is the Testimony of Steven Clark:-
On Sunday July 28th we went to the Healing Service at Ashburnham Chapel.  I had recently had an operation on my little toe at Benenden Hospital and I had a wire inserted to straighten it.  On Monday 29th I phoned up the hospital to ask for an earlier appointment than the one scheduled for the 20th August because I had received Prayer Ministry the night before and felt I had received healing.  I went the following day and when the Consultant removed the bandage protecting my toe, the pin and the wire, there was no wire in the toe and I was sent for an ex-ray.  The ex-ray showed no wire! It wasastonishing and miraculous and the toe is completely healed!  Thank you Lord! (Steven Clark)
