Deliverance Ministry

The Bishop of Hereford has authorised a team of ministers to support parish clergy in their work of pastoral care and support.

The team will assist in discerning the source or cause of disturbing experiences and in determining appropriate ways of resolving them. The purpose of deliverance ministry is to make real to those who might feel possessed, oppressed or afraid the love and peace that God intends for all people through the work of Jesus Christ and his Church.

The team works within the professional boundaries of the Church of England and with an approved Code of Practice.

If you feel that you would like assistance in this area, then please first contact your local Church of England priest who will be only to happy to assist. The team work closely with local clergy to ensure you have ongoing pastoral care and they have guidelines to assist you in these matters. If you are unable to contact your local clergy then please email the team at

Some prayers that might be useful

For protection:

Christ within me,
Christ behind me,
Christ before me,
Christ beside me,
Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,
Christ in quiet,
Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all who love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

For a house:

Visit this place, O Lord, we pray, and drive far from it the snares of the enemy;
may your holy angels dwell with us and guard us in peace,
and may your blessing be always upon us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
