Transformation Through Christ's Love & Care

For over 30 years Acorn has been helping churches to bring healing and wholeness to people and communities.  Acorn provides people, regardless of their circumstances, background or life choices, with the opportunity to experience the "shalom" that is at the heart of the Christian message.

As well as our work with churches, Acorn has trained hundreds of Christians across the UK who volunteer in hospital chaplaincy, police stations, foodbanks, Street Pastors, in GP surgeries, universities and youth work.

Early in the life of Acorn, we recognised the importance of listening in the process of healing and we also found that reconciliation was a significant area of healing where churches needed support.  The result is our unique healing ministry which includes particular attention to the areas of reconciliation and listening.

Our work includes providing training, prayer ministry, direct support and other resources.  You can find out more about these in the rest of our website.

You can find details of all our events and retreats on our programme page.  If you would like to arrange an event at your church or for a group, please email us and one of our staff will contact you to discuss your needs.

We run courses and events at Whitehill Chase, our retreat centre at Bordon, on the Hampshire/Surrey border.  We also hold a service of healing and wholeness here on Tuesdays (except August and over Christmas). Selected messages from services are available here.
