What’s the healing bus?


The Healing Bus is all about Love. It’s about the Church leaving the building and loving people. Sharing the good news of the unconditional love of Jesus, without condemnation. We offer to pray with anyone and everyone, (not children under 18 unless with parents consent) for God’s healing touch.  We hand out Christian literature, (free of charge) about our ministry, for people to get in touch. Another facet of the ministry, is to share and encourage churches to get alongside us with our mission. If you would like your church or christian group to support us in any way, we would love to hear from you.


We’re a registered Charity 


In December 2014, The Healing Bus was entered into the register of Charities for England and Wales and became a Registered Charity (1159619). 

The Healing Bus supports many non-profit organisations that are established to help people in our communities. 


Our Mission, Vision, and Values 


  1. To see people healed, set-free to move on in the freedom they’ve found through prayer by the power of Jesus.
  2. To be guided by the power of the Holy Spirit, and travel from place-to-place to pray with people and tell them about Jesus and how He heals. 
  3. Support and work alongside local churches to link up people we have prayed for in that area.
  4. To encourage Churches and their members to come and support us in the ministry of prayer and to offer practical assistance.
  5. To offer training and teaching on how to pray effectively for God’s healing.

How it all started 

Prayer Ministry Tent

In the summer of 2009 we were loaned a “Prayer Tent” by a church that we were members of for a Fun Day show outreach at Andrews Park in Chelmsford. We had lots of Christian information inside the tent with some chairs and a small table. Two people we prayed for, one of whom had a serious heart condition, received prayer and started to attend church. Two weeks later that man had a successful heart transplant and received Jesus into his life. Towards the end of 2009, God began to speak to us again about a bus going from place to place, village to village. God was saying… “go out to the people and pray for them”. God spoke to two other people from our church as well about a mobile bus ministry.

Leaders Nick and Marina with Pastor Peter Balls and Mayor and Mayoress in September 2010

In 2010, so many things went wrong for us and we were really tested. Three people close to us died, but then God said … “now you will start to work for me”. So we prayed and prayed together with some others for a prayer bus. We particularly asked for a sign and confirmation from God that this is what He wanted us to do. Then unexpectedly we received a large anonymous donation which enabled us to buy a disabled-accessible minibus, which was converted to be used in administering prayer.

By September the ministry was ready to go. Over the next few years the ministry held outreaches at various towns and villages including Chelmsford, Ingatestone, Shenfield, Billericay, Witham, Braintree, Tiptree, Coggleshall, Harold Hill, Upminister and many more in Essex.

Marina has been a Christian for over 40 years and is married with two children. Marina would love to share her story of how she miraculously survived a fire, and of how God spoke to her about a mobile prayer ministry that would bring God’s healing to people through the power of prayer. Marina is passionate to see people set free in Christ and she believes ultimately that God loves you. He can set you free and move into the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

God hears our prayers!


The Lord hears his people when they call to Him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles… The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time. The Lord looks after those who love Him. We are living in a time where staying away from God is to live at your own risk, in a world that is crying out for help to try and fill a void that only God can fill.

He is there for you. His arms are outstretched and waiting to embrace you as you come to Him. The Fathers desire is to shower you will His love. He knows your every situation and what needs to happen to resolve your situations.

He also knows your future and in that context He will also help you achieve the best outcome in terms of your ultimate destiny.

Come to Him today and worship Him. Lay your troubles at the foot of the cross and let the Fathers love make a way where there seems to be no other way.

I call on you, Oh God, for you will answer me; give ear to me and hear my prayer. Psalm 17:6

Do you know the hope of Christ?

The Bible teaches that we can have a new life, a new heart, through Jesus Christ. First, you must turn away from your sins. Second, you must receive Him as your Lord and Saviour. You can do that right now, and He will bring the peace and the joy of Christ to your heart and transform your life. You can have a whole new life if you will surrender to Christ.


Start by simply talking to God. 

You can pray a prayer like this:


Oh God, I am a sinner. I’m sorry for my sin. I want to turn away from my sin. Please forgive me. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son; I believe He died for my sin and You raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Saviour and follow Him as my Lord from this day forward, forevermore. Lord, I put my trust in You and surrender my life to You. Please come into my life and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ Name Amen

If you have prayed the prayer above or want to know more about God’s love for you, please contact us and we will send you a bible free of charge.
