Prayer Ministry

We have a large team of people equipped for and passionate about prayer. We call them ‘trusted pray-ers’. They have recognised gifting in prayer ministry and are available to pray with others. Much of the time prayer happens in and around times we gather as a church, such as Gatherings or in Lifegroups.

There is a practical ‘how to’ booklet for prayer ministry and as a church we support our trusted prayers to attend workshops, training sessions and conferences to develop their prayer ministry.

If you would like to know more about receiving prayer or becoming a trusted pray-er feel free to get a hold of us.

Elders are happy to be asked to pray for others as well.

SPECIALISTS IN PRAYER

We have people who specialise (have trained) in prayer for more in-depth inner healing, if you would like to know more about this please contact Warren Read.

We also have a group of experienced prayers who come alongside those who want prayer for the discerning of spiritual attack. Please contact pastoral care if you think you are dealing with this.

We can also recommend the Christchurch-based Ellel Ministries Aotearoa New Zealand team. Ellel Ministries is an international non-denominational Christian mission organisation. It’s vision is to enact Luke 9:11 where Jesus ‘welcomed people, taught them about the Kingdom of God and healed those in need’. People can be prayed for individually or as a group. Individual sessions for prayer ministry can also be arranged. Ellel Ministries offers excellent training seminars for those wanting to learn more about developing their prayer gift. For more information, see Ellel ministries.

Prayer is also available through the Healing Rooms ministry.
