Healing on the Streets
Date: Saturday, 4 August 2012
Time: 10.30am - 1.00pm
Where: Outside Coleraine Town Hall
Healing on the Streets was birthed and pioneered by the Causeway Coast Vineyard on the streets of Coleraine in Northern Ireland in Easter of 2005. Adopted by many churches the Healing on the Streets model has spread around the world. It’s a gentle, non-confrontational way of connecting with people on the streets of our cities and introducing them to Jesus.
Healing on the Streets is marked with a look and feel that distinguishes it from other street ministries. We create an environment that is full of the atmosphere of Heaven; a “thin place” where heaven and earth meet and people can experience the Kingdom and encounter the King. To help facilitate this ministry on a weekly basis we use chairs, a distinctive banner that says “HEALING,” invitational “Healing” leaflets, and music specific to this model. We simply invite passers-by to sit on our chairs to receive healing, or offer prayer for any need they may have.
We create an environment on the streets that spreads the fragrance of Jesus, and brings the hush and awe of heaven to anyone walking through the area, regardless if they sit on our chairs or not! It’s unpressurised and peaceful, an oasis of healing where people are offered the opportunity to drink from the fountain of life.
