Healing Ministry

Basic Healing Prayer Workshop

Emmaus Anglican Church is excited to team with the Christian Healing Institute (CHI) to provide a healing prayer workshop. CHI’s mission is to bring the healing ministry of Jesus Christ into the mainstream of life and they envision a time when all Christians will experience and participate in this ministry just as Jesus instructed us to do. CHI’s training is biblically grounded, easy to understand and immediately useful. We are delighted to open this workshop to anyone from local churches interested in the opportunity to partner in seeing the Kingdom of Heaven manifested on earth!

The training will include such topics as Hearing God’s Voice, How to Pray for Physical and Inner Healing and Obstacles to Healing. Along with the teaching, you’ll also have a chance to practice what you’re learning and there’ll be plenty of time for Q and A.

Healing Ministry at Emmaus


Jesus’ ministry was one of words and deeds, teaching and signs and wonders. We believer through the power of the Holy Spirit, God wants to heal the sick in body, mind and spirit. So, at Emmaus prayer for healing is a regular part of our life together. It is our joy and delight to offer the healing ministry of Jesus to anyone who calls on His name.


We offer various kinds of healing:

  • Physical Healing
  • Inner Healing (or, Healing of Memories)
  • Prayer for times of grief and loss
  • Confession
    • At our two Sunday Services after the Eucharist.  A team of two people are available in the back to pray for you.
    • We have a Healing Service/Eucharist on Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. where we do ‘hands on healing’. 
    • We have people you can be put in touch with that will meet with you at a time that is more convenient.  This is available for prayer, healing, inner healing and prayer for times of grief and loss.


Depending on the type of healing or prayer you are looking for, we have various times and opportunities:


Don’t miss out on the opportunity to accept prayer.  As it states in James 5:14, “Is anyone amount you sick?  Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them an anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.”
