Pastoral Care Team

CHS has a pastoral care team whose purpose or vision is to serve the body of believers by helping bring people into healing or wholeness through relationship with Jesus Christ.

There are three main parts of this ministry:

  • Counseling
  • Healing Rooms
  • Prayer Ministry

 

Counseling

The counseling team includes lay Christian counseling, bringing people into healing / wholeness through their relationship with Jesus Christ

Counseling services are provided by members of our lay-counseling team (Male and female), all of whom are trained to assess, counsel and refer onwards if deemed appropriate. Gillian Wilson assists with the organization and administration of the team. Meetings are totally confidential and take place in a quiet allocated space with one of the team. All bookings for counseling are done through the church office on 021 701 3201 or info@chscapetown.org


 

Healing Rooms

Healing Rooms is now being held EVERY WEEK on Tuesday evenings

Christ Church Kenilworth – 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month
Time: 17.30 – 18.30
CHS – 2nd & 4th Tuesday of the month
Time: 19.30 – 20.30

Healing Rooms are for individual prayer for physical, spiritual and emotional healing. Seesions are held at CHS on the second & fourth Wednesday of the month from 7:30-9:30 pm.

What are Healing Rooms?

Healing Rooms are an inter-denominational ministry where ordinary lay volunteers pray for people who need physical or emotional healing.

How does it work?

People who wish to be prayed for receive individual and confidential attention from a team of two trained Healing Rooms workers for approximately half an hour, although this length of time can vary. After having signed in and whilst waiting for ministry, people are encouraged to spend time in the soaking room where gentle worship music is played. (A few people have received healing in this room without ministry having taken place!)

What do you pray for?

While our primary emphasis is on physical healing, we believe that many problems, including sickness, can have spiritual and emotional roots. Our emphasis is on being led by the Holy Spirit in praying for the needs of each individual. We do not practice medicine or counseling. People are encouraged to continue with existing medical treatment until their practitioner says otherwise.

Who may come for prayer?

This ministry is open to people of all denominations. People of non-Christian faiths or no faith at all may also come for healing prayer, although all prayer is offered in the name of Jesus Christ.

Is there a charge?

There are no appointments and there is no charge. Because some healings take place over a period of time, people are welcome to come repeatedly for prayer.

Is training offered?

Training courses are offered for people who feel called to pray for healing. There is a small fee.
