Our journey with God and with one another is a journey towards wholeness of mind, body and spirit. Our service is a way to bring the whole of ourselves, everything and everyone we care about to God, asking for his healing touch in areas that concern us.
It is a said service, every fourth Sunday of the month, lasting about 40 minutes, and using words and prayers from the Christian Community in Iona. It is inclusive in breadth and in language. We come together acknowledging that we all need God’s loving touch in different ways.
The prayers used ask the Holy Spirit to flow through us and those we love and pray for. You will not be asked to share anything personal, and you don’t have to wait until you’re unwell to come. Many people use the space as a time of quite prayer.
During the service, there are opportunities to light candles, either silently or with a short prayer. There is also an invitation to receive the laying on of hands with a general prayer for healing and wholeness, either for yourself, or for someone else, or a situation, which you hold silently before our Lord.
Everyone is welcome – there are no barriers. We believe God meets each of us in his love as we gather together.
Our service is simply a way of inviting God into the heart of all that matters to us and allowing him to reveal his heart of purposeful, healing love in our lives, communities and our world.
