Healing is God's ceaseless work. Endlessly he desires our wholeness, our perfection in love.

The Sozein Trust is situated in pleasant countryside, with the desire to serve and love God, by welcoming and attending to people who are poorly: physically, mentally or spiritually.

Many folk like to think that the church can produce physical healing of diseased or damaged bodies. Whilst this occasionally happens it is not the core work of the church’s ministry of healing. The core work is encouraging both groups and individuals to seek, and grow in co-operating with the will of God. Through prayer and childlike, expectant trust we allow God “to love the hell out of us” so that our actions become more charitable and less destructive. Healing is the salvaging and reforming of all that is awry and disordered in us, and outside us, so that it may be claimed for the universal body of Christ.

“Here”, as a Chairman of the Trustees said, “people meet their real selves and discover what it is to love themselves and be loved by others and by God. By the gently strong work of the Spirit of God broken hearts are bound together, captives are released and people who feel themselves to be imprisoned are set free.”

The Sozein Trust is for any who feel the need of a listener, prayer help or a place to be alone with God. We have  a residential library for individuals or groups and a small chapel. Holy Communion is celebrated on Fridays at 12.00 noon.

Coming Next: Our next Quiet day will be on Monday Sept 29th, starting at 9.45a.m. The theme is the Revd Dr Martin Israel who was for many years a Patron of our charitable trust, a mystic and a gifted writer.
