Divine Healing Ministries
Lichfield Enabler Irene Nicholls advises that she's... been privileged to be involved in the Healing Ministry in my local church since 1991. As a Third Order Franciscan I've also been involved with Br David Jardine at Divine Healing Ministries, an Interdenominational Healing Ministry in Belfast since 2004. Over the years we've exchanged visits and training, the most recent being Br David's visit to Stoke in 2016. You can find out more about them here.

Costa Healing Rooms
These are a 'marketplace expression of healing' which has developed out of the England and Wales Healing Rooms Ministry. It is growing rapidly across the UK. Paul Howard has been involved with the team developing it, based in the Potteries and South Cheshire, and is happy to talk about it and bring someone with him from the team. He can also arrange a visit to see it in action in this area. Their website is here with more info here.
