Jesus Christ the Healer.

There will be a healing service with anointing of the sick on Sunday May 7th at 3pm at Sacred Heart Church, Bilton. This is a celebration and time of prayer for those who feel a need of healing whether physical, emotional or mental. The sacrament of the sick is not only for those who are dying or seriously ill. It is for those who feel the need for the Lord’s help with wholeness to bring inner peace and strength. There will be refreshments after the service. Everyone is welcome.
