Membership of the Guild
Membership of the Guild is something which many people have come to value. They have found that it has -
- Given them a link with a much larger organisation dedicated to promoting and supporting the ministry of healing.
- Provided them with encouragement and support at the local level.
- Opened up opportunities for helping others through prayer, ministry and in many other practical ways.
- Enlarged their vision and stimulated their thinking on many matters to do with health and healing.
- Provided occasions for fellowship and shared worship with others who have similar concerns at heart.
Becoming a Member of the Guild
The Guild has three kinds of membership -
If there is a branch of the Guild in your parish, the normal way of becoming a member would be to join your local branch. The subscription is £5 a year for each individual member. Every branch has a Branch Secretary, and subscriptions are paid to them. Members receive a copy of Guild News every six months, but subscriptions to Chrism are additional.

This is for people who are not linked to a local branch, but wish to be associated with the aims of the Guild and make use of the opportunities and support which membership provides. An increasing number of people are availing themselves of this option. The subscription is £5 a year, and should be sent direct to the Organising Secretary at the Guild Office. Applications for membership should also be made to the Organising Secretary.
This is for churches who for various reasons do not feel it appropriate to form a branch of the Guild in their parish, but nevertheless wish to be associated with the aims of the Guild and make use of the opportunities and support which membership provides. The subscription is £40 a year and should be sent direct to the Organising Secretary. Applications for affiliated membership should also be made to the Organising Secretary.
