Anglicans host major conference on health and healingFriday 20 July 2012
The Anglican Health Network (AHN) will host a two–day conference in the UK in April next year to draw together the experience of churches engaged in health services and healing ministries.
AHN Coordinator, Revd Paul Holley, commented: ‘In a changing health landscape, there are clear signs that churches are engaging afresh with the health sector.’ The conference programme will consider the wide variety of health and healing initiatives offered by parishes, healing agencies and Christian hospitals. Speakers are drawn from the UK, Europe and the United States and will provide insight into new innovations in the field of faith and health.
The event will be shaped around three themes:
- Health, dying and human flourishing
- The healing ministries of the church amongst individuals and communities
- The church in the governance and delivery of health services
It will take place at the National Motorcycle Museum near Birmingham International Airport on 24 and 25 April 2013.
Revd Holley, announced today that the registration system is now open, “We have put together a line up of speakers that will bring innovative thinking to the interplay between churches and health services. We are delighted now to invite participants to join us for what will be a ground–breaking conference.”
The conference is co–hosted by Anglican Health Network and Parish Nursing Ministries UK, with sponsorship from the Guild of Health. Many of the key UK healing agencies have come together in order to plan the event:
- Burrswood Hospital
- Acorn Christian Healing Foundation
- St. Marylebone Healing and Counselling Centre
- Project for Spirituality, Theology & Health, University of Durham
- Holy Rood House
- Mind and Soul
