We All Get to Play
Growing a culture and practice of healing in the local church
In Matthew 15:22-28 Jesus describes healing and deliverance as the ‘children’s bread’. In other words, it is an everyday essential which no good father would withhold from his children. How much more so does our Father God want to bless us today with these gifts? Writing from his fundamental desire to close the gap between what we read in the New Testament description of Jesus and the early church’s ministry and kingdom lifestyle, and our experiences as individual believers and, especially, as the family of God in our churches, Alastair Mitchell-Baker has crafted a vital foundational ‘manual’ for the practice and culture of healing ministry within the local church.
Churches are of all types, styles and sizes. They look wonderfully and beautifully different, and so the full restoration of healing ministry will look and feel different too. Yet Jesus wants us all to be His feet and hands, His eyes, ears, and lips, to bring His restoring love and power to the people in our communities, towns, and cities.
This book is designed as a resource for church leaders and members who want to see more healing and transformation in their local churches and communities. It is born of Alastair’s personal journey and the experiences and teaching of his home church, The Gate, in Reading, UK
