The aim of the group is to understand more of the Bible and how to apply it to everyday issues.

Everyone is Welcome.

Valley Healing Service

6pm at St Ann's Church, Edgeside

Four times a year, healing services are held at St. Anne’s Edgeside. These are organised by a team made up of people from various church denominations within the Rossendale Valley. The hope is that these services are a resource for the Valley, St. Anne’s is used merely as a base in order to be a recognised meeting place for this service.


We have seen many people being helped by what has been revealed and shared during these times, it really is exciting to see what the Lord reveals and to see how people are helped.

Healing means that we are concerned about the wholeness of a person, which includes the physical, emotional and spiritual, and we have seen the Lord move in all these ways as He brings healing to His people.

Perhaps you are concerned about issues in your life, it could be a physical or emotional problem, it might be that you are wrestling with various aspects of your life that are dragging you down, perhaps you just need space to come before God.

If so, please give this service a try.
