Healing Prayer Service

God still heals people today and that healing prayer is commanded by God's Word (see James 5:16. If you would like to receive healing prayer then do please come along to the Healing Prayer Service at The Avenue, Evangelical Church - you are most welcome. You do not need to know anything about the Bible or about Jesus. We would simply love to pray for you. Although we feel it is better to be prayed for when you are present, if you feel unable to attend, you can send your prayer request to us at 42 Warwick Avenue, IP12 1 JX and we will make sure that we pray for you.

If you are a regular at another church, do please feel free to come and receive prayer; it is open to all.
