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 >
