Healing is an invitation to go on a journey into wholeness with God.  Our founder, Morris Maddocks described healing as Jesus meeting someone at their point of need.

Learn about healing

If you want to discover more about healing take a look at Growing a Healing Ministry a course for small groups, or look for Christian Healing Explored and Generational Healing in our course programme.  You can also find books on healing in our bookshop.

Experience healing

We hold services of healing and wholeness on most Tuesdays of the year which include the opportunity to receive prayer.  We also have regular Deeper Healing Days which provide more time and space for people to receive prayer and the healing touch of Jesus.

A safe place

We offer a safe place to find healing and wholeness that only comes from God.  People from all walks of life come, sometimes considerable distances for our team to listen to them and pray with them.

Trained Prayer Ministry Team

We have a trained team from all denominations who have a wide experience within the healing ministry.  They are available to listen to you and to pray with you if that’s something you would like.  The team are led by our Chaplain, Revd Elizabeth Knifton who is the Bishop of Guildford’s advisor on healing and a former hospital chaplain and nurse.

If you would like to request specific prayer ministry, please contact us to make an appointment.

Healing and the NHS

Following practical experience of using some of our training with one hospital chaplaincy, we are currently undertaking a research project with Leeds University and a major NHS hospital trust to evaluate the beneficial impact of hospital chaplaincy volunteers trained by Acorn on cancer patients.  This 3 year project ends in November 2014 and has been made possible by grants from a number of charitable trusts.
