Read below for an outline of what Healing Life’s Hurts is about and why it is so important in the Body of Christ in these days:-

Healing life’s hurts, Inner Healing, Healing prayer ministry, Godly Counsel, Setting the Captives Free, Freedom in Christ, Restoring the Foundations, Healing and wholeness and many other names have been used to describe this vital, central ministry of Jesus to all who come to Him, and us and through us to each other. One name you don’t hear to often to describe this ministry is Sanctification, yet that is exactly what it is.

Scripture talks about husbands helping their wives to 26 to make her holy, cleansing[a] her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.  Ephesians Chapter 5. In the book of Revelation we hear about Jesus referring to His Bride that “she has made herself ready”  Revelation 19:7 and many other verses. These all allude to us being made fit for the King and fit for the Kingdom!

The reality is if you have grown up on this planet, and most of your have! You have been hurt, taught wrong things, believed wrong things, and have wrong beliefs and understanding about things that are string and unshakable because they were rooted and grounded in you through your own personal experience through people you trusted. These ‘things’ I have just listed are what we call inner wounds. The are just like physical wounds, but they don’t heal as well. Their affects last for a lifetime, and they produce bad fruit in our lives and the lives of those we have influence over.

It is very clear that a principle part of Jesus reason for coming above and beyond Salvation, Forgiveness of sin, Reconciliation with the Father and Himself, he also wanted to undo the damage that living in a fallen world where sin abounds, and we have all been hurt in different ways by different people, situation, organisation, nations, even the church! Jesus is ready willing and able to embark on this Sanctifying healing journey as soon as we come to him and ask Him to receive us forgive us and receive the gift of eternal life. The problem is this can often be a process and not an event! It may be what he does with you and through all the days of the rest of your life here on planet Earth. Day by day, more healing and wholeness, fresh understanding from him, the Truth being revealed and SETTING YOU FREE from all that still entangles you. So why was this not all dealt with at the cross? It was, it is being, and it will be. As far as our account with Him is concerned in his ‘out of time-ness’, it’s already in the bank. For us we received and evidenced a huge portion of this when we gave our lives to Jesus, but there are still imperfection, in-forgiveness, bitterness in some people even after they have been saved. How can this be? One fact is certain. It is the case. In simple terms it seems that the job is done, but is being done and will be done. One of the problems individually is we do not do what we say will do when give our lives to Jesus. He knows that though and covers us with grace until the time when we and he are ready to deal with the issues that remained after the cross. because we would not release them. We held onto them as our free will choice! The upshot is it is as plain as the nose on your face, there is still ‘STUFF’ that is not yet as it should be, and it’s affecting, you and others and your relationship with Jesus. He wants to release you in all of these areas. It was for FREEDOM he set YOU FREE! The deal was abundant life! I’m still journeying into that life and enjoying every life changing moment as Jesus heals me and releases me and widens my horizons and leads me into a green and spacious place.

That’s why this ministry is so important. It is the finishing off phase of your journey here on Earth, and it will form and profoundly affect the way you minister Jesus to others and what they see in you as you do what he has prepared for you to do. To God be the Glory. Want to know more?   Click Here to access a series of A4 topic pages on common issues and how to deal with them.

Welcome – life in all it’s fullness!

In the beginning…. What a beautiful expression of pristine beauty, expectation, dew on the ground and the flowers, everything without stain or blemish, spot or wrinkle, clean, unspoiled. Does this captivate your imagination, does your heart leap at the thought of it. No sickness, no disease, no death. A pea soup of Gods thick and pervasive love for all things including you! He has not changed his plan, or his feelings towards you.

In this life however it does not seem quite like that at this stage does it? Things went badly wrong and here we are. However God has done all that is necessary for you to be restored to the Glory you once were created in, and he will see it to completion. Jesus has made it possible.

Those who chose Him and his ways will inherit eternal life.

One day, soon, he will create all things new. Brand spanking NEW! In that place NEW heaven and NEW Earth, you can live forever in beauty, peace, joy, health and eternal happiness. Would you like that? Would you like to see a expression of that even here on Earth in the here and now? Hand your life over to Jesus, and give Him authority to use you, change you, heal you, restore you, re-new you and make you his own, and receive your NEW LIFE in all it’s FULLNESS. That was Jesus’ promise to you. He keeps all his promises. To God be the Glory.

Enjoy this site, and the journey I hope you are on into the very heart of the Father, through the Son, by the Power of His Holy Spirit.

Wild at Heart Boot Camp – men’s stuff

Colorado Team were here in UK in April 2018!

What an amazing message they brought and shared with the UK Allies. It will affect us ALL!

Below is an audio message shared by Andrew Walsh, one of the UK Allies the following John and Stasi’s visit and provides an excellent overview. With permission.

Audio Message:-

Below is a message sent by John to encourage us as we shared, all we had heard on 23rd June at Chorley Chapel with 60 to 70 folk present. This was a time of significance for us as Boot Campers, the nation, and may be the world, and there is a role to play in the story that we are a part of and is unfolding as I write.

Video Message:-

Our conclusion; to use a quote of C S Lewis:- “Aslan is on the move” here in the UK, powerfully, here, now, and there are things we need to know, and things we need to do. Ransomed Heart are being used by God to facilitate his move in this land. The first thing to do is to pray and ask, Lord, what is my part in this great event you are unfurling in the land you have given us? Then you will know if this is real and that this is the time.

Ransomed Heart, HERE in the UK 13 – 16 September 2018. See link below for full details.

About Alan and Sue

My wife Sue and I took over leadership of Chorley Chapel officially in June  2002 following an Induction by representatives of the Heart of England Baptist Association (HEBA). We had served at the Chapel for three month prior having offered to allow the retiring pastor Eric Stirrup a three month sabbatical.

Sue had been a follower of Jesus since age six. For me it was a different story! I had been a atheist (even an evangelical atheist)since the age of 22, and at the age of 47 without me searching Him out, He came and searched me out. My testimony is attached here. Sue and I married in 1995 after loosing our previous spouses through cancer. Between us we have 6 children 4 girls and 2 boys. Life has had it’s humps and hollows along the way, but God has helped us to learn and grow through each of them. Between us we have a wealth of experience where God has taught us in life we will have troubles, but fear not….. Also that it’s not the troubles that define you, it’s what you make of them when they come. They can make you bitter or they can make you better, the difference is a free will choice each one of us have to make for ourselves along the way.

Sue grew up in Kidderminster, one of six sisters and a brother in an amazing and godly family of which I am proud to be associated. I grew up in a small village (then) called Maghull on the outskirts of Liverpool not too far from Aintree Race Course which even did motor racing in those days. On coming to faith and giving my life to Jesus on the 19th May 1991 at the same time as my daughter Holly, I started the life changing journey that is on going to this day. Sue and I both came to believe that the denominational model of Christianity was hard to support if we base our beliefs and understanding on God’s Word. We both realised that we should be open about what we are.  We believe we are disciples, followers of Jesus Christ and therefore are not Baptists, Anglicans, Protestants, or Pentecostals, nothing but disciples of Jesus. We talked this through with folk at HEBA ready to step down if necessary! They understood, and agreed to support us and to let us continue to work from the Chapel at Chorley. How amazing is that! Praise God.

This change took place in our seventh year at Chorley, and as God unfolded our work ahead, and our faith deepened, right there in a traditional rural Baptist Chapel! Everything began to change, and is still changing. It’s surprising how deep the traditional religious and legalistic roots go!

Our principle activity now is to fellowship and build one another up in love, and seek to help, support, share with, and provide for those in need as we have opportunity. God led us back to the early days of the Church ‘He’ set up, and we discovered many things there. Most of the time Jesus did what he did one to one or at best with small groups. It was these small groups that started the world changing Faith based on all that Jesus taught. Yes he did teach and preach to large crowds, but the real life changing renewing work of making disciples was with his close circle of followers. After His death that tiny group in partnership with the Holy Spirit changed the world as we know it! They ate together (which we do a lot of), they talked and discussed the Scriptures together, drawing out the Truths they contain (which we do a lot of) often around the table with food of course, we focus on making our Faith and beliefs real, practical, Spirit inspired, and relevant, we break bread together. We minister to one another for healing and wholeness of the physical as well as the emotional and Spiritual. We consider ourselves a band of travellers on the journey of ‘Life’, who have come together for a time and a purpose which is in God’s hands. We are not trying to build a congregation although that is growing, we believe we are called to help bring about a place where Jesus can build His Kingdom, and bring people into that Kingdom under Christ. He is the King, we are the subjects, and one day we will reign with him! This is our training ground here and now. We are learning to live in that Kingdom context together as we journey.  Would you like to join us?

We don’t see Church as a building, or a destination. Church is the people who meet together in love of Jesus Christ, and have chosen to love one another as he commanded. It is not the prime mission to get people to come to our church, sit in rows and be preached at! People come, we share, we worship, we explore God’s Word and we pray, we journey together, we all grow through the process. Not just in numbers but in love and fellowship. At the appointed time some  may leave and go off to do the job that Jesus has been preparing them for, and we had the privilege of playing a small part in His grand plan.

We pray, we sing, we break bread, we share our help, skills, and gifts together and we are being changed by His Spirit in that very process. The early Church following Jesus’ death on a Cross grew in about 400 years to cover the whole known earth at that time. That church is still out there today and is still growing exponentially, even as the popular view of institutional church is, ‘it is in decline’! How wrong can you be?

In the Bible the choice is set out clearly. Choose Life!

The Life Jesus offers is a life of on going transformational change from one degree of glory to another. It was for LIFE in all it’s fullness. It was for FREEDOM that he set us free. Well that’s been my experience anyway and that’s what we share, teach and help others come into, Life in ALL ITS FULLNESS!

Our strap line says it all:-

“To receive and live in God’s Love, pursue wholeness and share both with the people of Chorley and beyond.”

To God be the Glory.

Be blessed in Jesus Name Alan and Sue.
