Teams from Trent Vineyard regularly head out into Nottingham and Mansfield to share Jesus' love with no strings attached.
Healing on the Streets
We offer prayer to passers-by and Saturday morning shoppers. Praying for a wide variety of people, ranging from a couple desperately trying to conceive, to an elderly gentleman who had injured his wrist after a fall, the team aims to bring something of God's love to those they meet.
A few months ago a mother and daughter saw the team praying for people outside Debenhams and stopped for some prayer. The daughter had been suffering with lots of mouth ulcers, for months, and couldn’t get rid of them. A few of the team members prayed for them, encouraged them and shared God’s love with them. About three weeks later they turned up at a Sunday service, and told us that the following day after they’d been prayed for, all of the ulcers had burst and disappeared.... and haven’t come back since!
One Saturday, a lady with intense lower back pain hobbled up to the chairs and sat down hesitantly. She found it difficult to sit up straight as she was in so much discomfort, and explained how she'd tried everything, including acupuncture, to cure her back problems, but that none of it had worked. We prayed for her, commanding the pain to go in Jesus' name, and then we asked her how she was feeling. She slowly got out of the chair, standing up, and turned to us exclaiming, "WHAT did you do?!?!.... It's like magic!"
Some, like this lady, have had illnesses/injuries healed instantly, others haven't. But all of them have had a time where they have experienced God's love that day. Some go on to visit the church, and some have made the church their own.
If you would like to come along to receive prayer or if you are a member of the chruch and would like to get involved then please come along! Please drop us an email for further information.
Random Acts of Kindness
Once a month we get out into the community to creatively bless those we meet. Whether it’s wrapping shoppers’ Christmas presents, giving away free tea and coffee in the market square, or visiting an old people’s home, we want to share Jesus’ love and generosity with the people around us with no expectation of anything in return.
If you would like to get involved or would like to find out more then please drop us an email.
