Inclusion

Cardiff Christian Healing Ministry

Many broken people in the city, but no local agency equipped to offer prayer ministry. It was out of this need that CCHM was born.

Our vision is to see the church in Cardiff and the surrounding area fulfil the commission given by Jesus to his disciples, to preach the good news, heal the sick, and in doing so becomes a place brimming with abundant life.
