church of Christ the Healer
Our beautiful church of Christ the Healer was constructed in response to a vision received by Dorothy Kerin, and is the only church in the Anglican communion built and dedicated specifically for the ministry of healing.
It is integral to the main building with easy wheelchair access, sound amplification and a loop system. Although it is an Anglican Church, we welcome people from all Christian Churches to share in our worship and Holy Communion, and all are welcome to our services.
There is a pattern of daily worship, including the Eucharist, and services can be heard broadcast in the hospital bedrooms if desired. Ministry, including Holy Communion, is offered to patients in their rooms when requested.
Alternatively guests may stay in our Guest Rooms and enjoy all of Burrswood's facilities including the church or stay on one of our led retreats.
An intercessions book, kept on the altar of the Church of Christ the Healer, contains the names of all for whom daily prayer has been asked, and we lift those people to God daily during our times of worship.
The Breakthrough Cross
This cross is a daily reminder to us of the breakthrough of the Risen Lord Jesus into the lives of so many who come here. It was completed in 1966 by the sculptress Ophelia Gordon-Bell. It stands on the roof of the Lady Chapel at the Church of Christ the Healer and is made of cast aluminium and pieces of discarded scrap metal, to symbolise both the broken, confused and sinful mess in our hearts, and the power of the love of God to redeem it. It is a sign, as the sculptor herself said, ‘that the light is stronger than the darkness’.
