What's church all about?
How many vicars does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Did Noah have woodpeckers on the ark?
At a movie theatre which arm rest is yours?
...or any other big questions of life? Then why not come along to the Pack Horse pub, grab a pint and...
Grill a Bishop!

Sunday 12 March 4pm
Church of the Holy Spirit in Crawcrook
Our special guest speaker at this Healing Service on 12th March at 4pm in Crawcrook is John Ryeland, head of Church Healing UK (of which The Northumbrian Centre for Healing is a member).
So we would encourage you to bring along to that Healing Service anyone who might need God's blessing in any way.
John has been Director of CHM since 1997 and is also the Healing Adviser to the Bishop of Kensington. Before becoming the Director, he was a Church of England Vicar in Essex for 11 years. He has an MA in Theology, with particular reference to the healing ministry.
He has authored books and Bible studies around healing, including ‘Encountering the God who Heals’, ‘Making Every Day Count’, ‘The Invitation….. Learning to Pray’ and ‘Exploring Christian Healing’.
In the Gospel stories, when Jesus went into a
town things happened! Lives were changed and people were healed. For
this reason, one of the highest priorities of The Christian Healing
Mission is to encourage people to engage with the presence of Jesus, which
so often leads to healing and transformation. (Taken from the CHM website http://www.healingmission.org)
