Christian healing at Burrswood Church

At Burrswood hospital and Church we seek God’s healing through Christian ministry and prayer, medical excellence and professional counselling, as we care for every aspect of each person’s wellbeing – whether spiritual, medical or emotional. Stillness and beauty provide space for the Holy Spirit’s transforming work in every area of need.

We are committed to working within the mystery of suffering and Christian healing. We aim to keep the love of Christ at the heart of care, and to be a sign of the Kingdom of God in a hurting world.

In addition to our resident Anglican chaplain, ministry is offered through our Catholic and Free Church chaplains, and other trained and skilled voluntary staff drawn from our community and local churches. We offer time, prayer and sacrament, always aware that we are only channels for the healing love and power of Jesus Christ. We respect the freedom of all our patients and guests to accept or decline Chaplaincy care and welcome people of all faiths and none, never imposing our faith on those who come.

Find out about our Retreats - either residential or non-residential.

We offer a Ministry Guest Package for ministers, spouses or anyone whose ministry involves pastoral care and is in need of time out to prayerfully unwind and refresh mind, body and spirit. 

In addition, we work in partnership with St Luke's Healthcare for the Clergy to offer care for clergy - click here for more information.

The Burrswood Prayer Walk is based on 10 specially selected hymns. The words of these hymns are displayed at different points around the garden. You are invited to pause at each point and meditate on the verses that speak to you most.  Details can be found at the bottom of this page or copies are available at Burrswood.

Read an article about Burrswood written by Dr Gareth Tuckwell or listen to a recent talk.

Burrswood Church is supported by the prayer of the local community, the worldwide Burrswood Fellowship and many others.
