United Church offers workshop on healing touch

This is an introductory workshop in the Christian ministry of healing touch

The Healing Pathway ministry of the Campbell River United Church is offering a Phase I workshop in healing touch this coming weekend from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon.

This is an introductory workshop in the Christian ministry of healing touch based on the traditions of the church and the scriptural teaching of the healing presence of God. Participants will experience their ability to be a healing presence.

Topics covered will include the basic concepts of Christian centered healing and their traditional, scriptural and spiritual sources.  There will be instruction, demonstrations and practice in the laying on of hands in specific healing sequences.  Participants will also experience centering through prayer and meditation, and learn about self care.

The workshop leader is Gale Glover, an ordained minister of the United Church with a previous background in nursing.  She is a certified instructor for the Naramata Centre Healing Pathway curriculum.  Gale and others formed a Healing Pathway group in her congregation to offer pastoral care and healing to people in the church and community.  Gale also offers healing touch as a volunteer in the chemotherapy and medical day care units of Campbell River General Hospital.

This workshop will support a congregation who wishes to develop a healing ministry or individuals who are interested in exploring and developing the gift and practice of healing in Christian community.

The workshop fee is $125, or $75 for those who have taken the workshop before and need a refresher.

For more information or to register contact Wayne Hughes, the minister at Campbell River United Church, at 286-0431 or 203-7258.

Campbell River United Church is on the corner of Pinecrest and South Birch, just down the hill from Strathcona Gardens.  Regular Sunday worship and Sunday School are held weekly at 10 am.
