We believe that Jesus passionately desires every person to be transformed through experiencing his love and care.
Our calling is to make this a reality through our work of listening, healing and reconciliation.
Acorn lives out this calling in a variety of ways including providing training, giving direct support where it is needed, and through our prayer ministry. Our headquarters are at Whitehill Chase, Hampshire, a beautiful 19th century Hunting Lodge within several acres of peaceful gardens and woodlands. It makes an ideal location for the Acorn programme of retreats, courses and conferences.
Our weekly services of healing and wholeness are held every Tuesday (except August) to which all are welcome. We have a trained Ministry Team from all denominations who are there to listen to you and to pray with you if that’s something you would like.
We also have Acorn Regional Coordinators throughout the UK who are able to arrange courses locally to support local churches and other groups such as hospital chaplains, street pastors and schools.
Please explore our website and do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you would like to know more or would like to make use of Acorn’s services.
Acorn has recently initiated an innovative research project into the value of active listening for hospital patients in partnership with the University of Leeds and two acute hospitals. We hope that this research will provide additional evidence of the benefits of hospital chaplaincy and will also provide insights to enable Acorn to develop and enhance its training.
