Craig Lodge Mission House are thrilled to announce that Encounter Ministries have agreed to allow us the use of their curriculum as part of the formation of our successful applicants this coming year (2021/22). Our missionaries will benefit immensely from this opportunity and we are delighted to be entering into this partnership.
Drawing from the richness of our Catholic heritage, Encounter School of Ministry seeks to teach, equip & activate disciples to demonstrate the love of God through the power of the Holy Spirit in their sphere of influence.
The Gospel is too good to keep to yourself. Learn how to live a whole lifestyle that demonstrates the goodness of God in the world around you. The Encounter School of Ministry provides a safe space for you to learn, discern and take risks in developing your gifting, calling and confidence in stepping out in faith.

Me, Maddie and Helena were just out in the school yard, on the soccer pitch, and a group of maybe 12 or 13 year olds approached us. They were kind of joking, “our friend has a broken arm - would you pray for healing for him? So we said, “yes, absolutely.” We were going over to pray with this boy who had a broken arm, and Maddie said, “why don’t we all pray for him, not just us - so does everyone want to extend a hand?” So everyone put a hand on the boy. I led the prayer and they repeated the line after me. We all prayed together. It was about a group of five or six of them around this boy. After they were all kind of giggling, and the boy didn’t really do anything. So we said “move your arm and see, check it out.” He checked it and said, “I couldn’t move it that far before. I don’t feel anything!” We said, “you’ve seen healing. This is a miracle!”
I felt the Lord just say really strongly: "turn around I’m behind you." I don’t know what I expected. But I turned around, and there was this lady behind me walking towards me. She’d been there before but I had not seen her - she just came out of nowhere. I turned around and I was like, okay, well, I don’t have a word for her so I’ll just go up to her. So I went up to her and it turned out she was a fallen-away catholic, and she had been slowly coming back to the Lord. And she had this deep love for the Lord that she didn’t even know about. She ended up experiencing physical healing in her fingers and her feet. She was a musician and she hadn’t been able to play. So she got physical healing to be able to play again — but it was far more than that. The physical healing is always so good when it happens, but when you see the inner healing that comes with it! She encountered the Lord and the Holy Spirit was not missing a trick.
If you're local, come and celebrate Christmas with us for our nativity and carol service at the local church.
Draw close to Jesus as a family and be refreshed.
