Healing - An ORCAS Gathering
Aim: The aim of our gathering is to come together to receive a fresh filling of the Holy Spirit- to heal, and to be healed.
Although there are expenses to host and cater the conferences that we run, we would not want anyone to miss out due to cost. When you purchase your tickets, please prayerfully consider whether you would like to give an offering. You are able to do that as you book your tickets. Your generosity is most appreciated and allows us to further continue this ministry without a set charge. Thank you. :)
Seek Him together in worship and prayer for an empowering in the North of Scotland ( according to Acts 4:29-30 see below)
Increase our faith through using scripture to examine our beliefs about healing
Minister healing to one another in the Name of Jesus
Receive healing in the name of Jesus. Whether it is for a physical ailment, a mental health problem, or something else, come with expectation and faith that God will bring breakthrough in that area.
Hear what God is doing in Orkney, Caithness & Shetland & the North of Scotland as representatives from each locality will bring testimonies.
Acts 4:29-30 (ESV) 29 And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, 30 while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” 31 And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.
As fellowshipping as one big group is great fun, we will share lunch together on the Saturday and the Sunday. Please plan to make your own arrangments for evening meals. We have a number of hotels, and restaurants which serve food to choose from in Kirkwall. We would reccomend connecting with other delegates over the day on Saturday to make plans so that you are still taking this valuable opportunity to connect with others you wouldn't normally see. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about where to go.
Sunday's lunch will be soup and sandwiches, provided by various church memebers in Orkney. If you would like to bring something and are from Orkney, you will have a chance to let us know that when you book your tickets.
Please note.. Some of you may know that we had planned for Sverre Bjorhaug to be joining us from Norwary, but due to unforseen circumstances he had to cancel.
