The Rev’d Martin Turner will be leading a study on the ministry of healing. Martin believes it is an aspect of Christian ministry that is sometimes misunderstood and often neglected. This is an open meeting to which all in the Circuit are invited. Those attending are advised to bring a packed lunch and it would help with the preparation for the day if you would let me know beforehand of your intention to attend.

The study day will be followed by a related Act of Worship at Hucclecote led by the Rev’d Martin Turner on the Sunday evening, 27 October at 6.30pm
