About CHM

The Christian Healing Mission (CHM) is an online healing charity.  In one format or another, we have existed since 1948 and our aims are still the same – to encourage individuals and churches to seek the living God for relationship, healing and transformation.  


People regularly contact us to share the wonderful ways in which they have found healing and transformation in their lives as a result of prayer.  


“Just wanted to say what a blessing this morning was. It was like a dose of medicine which was just what I needed. Jesus really does always have what we need.”  A


“Thank you for holding me in prayer as I went for the biopsy on the lump in my neck today. When they did the scan prior to performing the biopsy, after a long time, they announced that there was absolutely no sign of any lump!” P


“This encounter has taken away so much of the sadness and loneliness you can feel when losing a loved one, especially a loving father. I see my father in a different light now and have had a lot of healing, thank you Jesus amen.” C


We have called our approach to prayer ‘Encounter Prayer’, and if you are interested you can find more about it on our Encounter Prayer website –


Have a look at some of the things we offer and don’t hesitate to contact us if you think we might be of help.  We will be pleased to hear from you.

The Team

At the end of 2022, Revd John Ryeland, who had been the Director of The Christian Healing Mission for the past 25 years, retired, along with his wife Gillian Ryeland.


The trustees are in the process of selecting a new director to take CHM forward. 

In the meantime, Liz Nicoll, who has been the Administrator at CHM since 2011, is continuing to keep the social media, websites, finances and other administrative tasks up to date. 

In December 2022 Suzanne Brooks rejoined the CHM team. She had previously worked as Prayer Ministry Co-ordinator at the premises in Cambridge Court, Hammersmith over 16 years ago.

Suzanne is helping to ensure that the weekly zoom sessions - Receive & Reflect - can continue during this transitional period at CHM.
