My favourite verse is 2 Corinthians 8:9 – “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, that through his poverty you might become rich.” It speaks of the amazing love of God that Jesus left the glory of heaven to live as a man, and showed what true humanity was meant to be, and then by His death opened the way for us to live that way, as God had always intended. I am always humbled and moved at the gentleness and grace that God shows whenever I pray for healing, and working in ministry is such a privilege and blessing.

My first 15 years of ministry were spent working with deaf and deaf/blind people, and I feel that they taught me as much as I taught them. I had always been involved in the healing ministry and it was when I moved into parish ministry that this started to develop into the vision for my current role.
My role in the team is to set up a healing centre which we have called ‘Gateway Christian Healing’. We meet as a group monthly and are out and about praying for individuals who ask us for prayer. Courses and events also form an important part of the healing centre’s work .
