Who we are and what we do

Acorn Christian Healing Foundation delivers Healing and Wholeness to individuals and communities.

Through training, service and resources we provide a safe and effective Christian context in which people can experience personal and community wholeness, through exploring the essential elements of Healing, Reconciliation and Listening, around the UK and at its Training and Retreat Centre in Bordon, Hampshire.

Established in 1983 by Bishop Morris Maddocks, Acorn has been at the forefront of providing people, regardless of their circumstances, background or life choices, with the opportunity to experience the 'shalom' - a life-encompassing peace - that is at the heart of the Christian message. Shalom impacts every area of a person's life - relationships, physical and spiritual wellbeing and emotional wholeness. 

Acorn remains engaged in, and committed to being a transformative agent in today's multifaceted society. Our training events are divided into three main pathways of learning:

  • Healing 
  • Reconciliation
  • Listening
