Publications

The Guild has always been noted for its publications.


In the past it produced a number of booklets and leaflets on a wide variety of subjects to do with the ministry of healing. Some of these remain ‘classics’, and in their time filled important gaps - with teaching on neglected or controversial subjects, such as anointing and exorcism. The Guild also provided forms of service for use when the ministry of healing was administered, and books of prayers for those who were ill.

Times have changed. Not only is there a wealth of literature available on many aspects of the healing ministry, but the Church has also acted in its official capacity. The report A Time to Heal and its companion handbook The Development of Good Practice in the Healing Ministry, fill many of the gaps which formerly the Guild sought to fill. And the new services for Wholeness and Healing in Common Worship: Pastoral Services provide ample liturgical material for most occasions.

In this changed situation the Guild has tended to focus on teaching. There is still a dearth of good material about healing from within the catholic and sacramental tradition, and the Guild has endeavoured to fill this gap. It has always had a reputation for serious theological thinking and tackling subjects in depth, and its present publications are continuing that tradition.

Guild News

This is our 'in house' newsletter which comes out at the same time as Chrism and goes to every Guild member. It contains news and views and, usually, a single page teaching article on some aspect of the ministry of healing.

Some of the more recent editions are now available on line for you to download. The files are in pdf format and are between one and two megabytes in size. We hope to add more backnumbers to this list when they become available.
