Nine Basic Modules of Christian Healing9 Modules

No experience necessary - just a desire to want to know and learn'.  Taught by a team from the Healing Centre - christian-healing.com - comprised of Randy, Ruth, Lisa, David & Sandra. The sessions are free but you will need to buy a copy of the course book at £5, available on the night. The sessions are made up of:

June 4th - Randy & Lisa: Cycle of Grace (5) & gifts of the spirit (4)
June 11th - Lisa & Randy: Listening to God (8) & Listening to others (2)

What is United 19? New Wine gathers as a family in the summer to celebrate everything God has done in our lives, and to encounter him afresh together and take his blessing back to our churches and communities – to see the nation changed through the local Church. United is a space for our church network to spend quality time together, to pitch in as a family, sharing food, receiving and praying for one another, and supporting each other and our churches. Experience impactful teaching, worship, a programme for all, friendships for life and transformational encounters with God.
