Welcome to the Llandudno branch of the Guild of Health and St. Raphael, which is based at Holy Trinity Church. The Guild is a healing organisation within the Anglican Church with many branches nationwide and overseas; and information about its origins, ministry and resources may be found on the Guild website.

“Yes, but what do you do?”

We pray for healing, as a group, and privately as individuals with a common purpose. Healing is understood as wholeness, in its true and widest sense. The Guild Rule asks us to “Pray daily for those suffering in mind, body, and spirit”.

This surely includes all of us at one time or another, but our list includes those who have asked for this support for themselves or loved ones, and is regularly reviewed.

Guild members also give Lay support, leading weekly Guild prayers on alternate Thursdays, and assisting monthly at the Holy Eucharist with ministry of healing.

We have also held open services of prayer, music and meditation at our local hospice and hospital, and remembered the Guild on St. Raphael’s Day at Holy Eucharist, and at the nearest Sunday morning service.

We also enjoy one or two outings, for example to Chester Cathedral and to the national Guild Festival.

Our branch holds monthly meetings and the weekly Guild Prayers for healing are on most Thursday mornings at 10.30 am in the Memorial chapel (see Calendar). We welcome non-members to Thursday Guild Prayers, to the Healing Eucharist and to our meetings.

Do join us! You will be very welcome.
