Alternative Services

Wholeness and Healing Services

The Church states, ‘ Healing, reconciliation and restoration are integral to the good news of Jesus Christ…. God’s gracious activity of healing is to be seen both as part of the proclaiming of the good news and as an outworking of the presence of the Spirit in the life of the Church.’

Have you seen those dramatic televised services and been put off the idea of a healing service? I have. However, during my training as a Reader, I learned more about current practice in the Church of England and experienced two very different styles of worship based on an understanding of wholeness and healing. As a result, I hope to introduce a service based around the church’s pastoral service pattern. A first trial of such a service will take place at 11am on April 6th. Come and join us seeking wholeness and healing in our Christian life.


A.T.O.M. is our Alternative Type of Meeting.  We try to make it fun and suitable for all ages.  We meet bi-monthly in Morland Village Hall (CA10 3AT for your satnav).

A.T.O.M. works on the basis that Church is the people and that ministry is something the whole church does together.

So we meet at 10.00am and everyone helps to set up the hall, prepare the service and serve breakfast.  If you play an instrument, please bring it along.

After breakfast is cleared away (at around 11.00am) we share the service together.  The format varies greatly, but usually involves some up-beat songs (we try to keep up to date as well as singing some golden oldies), digging into scripture together and some kind of activity together.  And the whole thing – from setting up the hall to clearing away is worship, because we’re doing it out of love for God.

Please join us.  If you have any queries, contact Revd Stewart Fyfe on 01931 714620.
