Healing Rooms N.Z.


                                              HEALING ROOMS New Zealand

The good news is that Jesus still heals people today

We believe that Jesus Christ continues to heal people today just like he did when he lived on Earth. Today he works through his followers in many different ways. Healing Rooms are one of the ways he is using to see people healed. 

Just like the times described in the Bible accounts of Jesus' life this healing is available to anyone. 

At Healing Rooms you can receive prayer, encouragement and love for physical and emotional healing. No charge and no appointment needed.

We are convinced God wants good things to happen to you. We believe he wants you to
be fully healed and pain free.


Mercury Bay Co-Operation Parish Support this Appeal

The Little Flower Children's Home in Pedong, India is in need of new flooring, bedding and bathrooms.

Talk to Robin Twemlow if you would like to know more about this worthwhile appeal.

Robin is involved because she has visited and stayed at the home and seen how well the children are doing. The children have come from extremely difficult situations and here they have the opportunity to grow up in a loving stable home.
