The Guild of Health & St Raphael
Healing through Christian Spirituality.
Our re-union with the Guild of St Raphael after 100 years was publicly celebrated in Chester Cathedral on Sat 24 October. (Chair’s address at Chester Cathedral: click here.)
We were founded in 1904 to bring together members of the clergy and the medical professions to study and promote the healing ministry of the Church. It is the oldest organisation in the UK working in the field of Christian healing. It seeks to be truly ecumenical and to draw on a broad spectrum of Christian traditions, whilst desirous that claims of healing be evidence-based wherever possible. more >
