What’s the healing bus?

The Healing Bus is not about a bus but all about the love of Jesus. It’s about the church leaving the building and loving people, sharing the good and unconditional love of Jesus, without condemnation. The Healing Bus is a mobile prayer ministry that uses a minibus to travel throughout Essex and beyond. *We offer to pray with anyone and everyone either in or out of the bus for God’s healing touch. We hand out Christian literature, (all free of charge) about Jesus for people to get to know and love Him like we do. If you would like to know more about the love of Jesus and the difference He can make in your life; or if your church or Christian group would like us to speak about the ministry, then we would love to hear from you. Please use the contact form and we’ll get in touch. You can also find out more about us by looking though the various pages of our website. 

* Not under 18 or vulnerable adult person without with parents / guardians consent beforehand.

Introducing Marina’s new book – ‘Hope for everyday’ 

Marina is very pleased to announce that she has a book.

Hope for everyday is a book that will help in everyday life. It gives a daily short reflection on a time or story in her life which is very moving and helpful. Then there is a short conclusion with talking to the Lord. This book is written to help focus on God and His love for us. It’s very down-to-earth, simple to read, and easy to explore. There are 100 short daily readings which are there to encourage you. Marina likes to write simple books so that everyone; young or old can benefit from them. We hope and pray that this simple book will be a real source of encouragement to you as you spend time looking and reflecting on Jesus our friend. 

“I found that Marina’s book Hope for Everyday was a real inspiration for me. Marina asked me to help produce this for her and as I read through the various chapters and the prayers that followed, it made me realise that Jesus can use an ordinary simple persons’s life experiences and change it for the good. Marina has demonstrated for herself the difference Jesus makes and openly shares the hope she has found with everyone she meets. I pray that your life will be inspired by this book as much as it has for me”. Nick 

“I just love Marina’s latest book, Hope for Everyday. We can all identify with so many of the situations and feelings she describes; disappointment, frustration, fear, anxiety, anger, and of course, gratitude. Marina shows us that whatever situation we find ourselves in, Jesus is there to help us and support us. He is here with us all the time, not just on Sundays or during worship services”.  Rosy 

To get one of Marina’s new books please contact us or Marina directly and she will supply one to you. There is a charge of £5 plus p&p per book but if you are experiencing hardship at the moment please let us know and will we send one out free of charge.

How it all started…

The Prayer Tent

In the summer of 2009 we were loaned a Prayer Tent by a local 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 the person that was prayed for 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 and 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.

The Mayor and Mayoress with Pastor Peter Balls and Nick and Marina

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.

I Took my Troubles to the LORD; I CRIED OUT to HIM, and HE ANSWERED my Prayer. Psalm 120: 1 (NLT)

Can we pray for you?

Person being prayed for

As Christians we have proved in our own experience that God exists and that God answers prayer. So we are delighted to pray for you. If there are particular needs you would like us to pray for, or if you would like someone to visit and pray with you, feel free to talk to us, or contact us. If we can help you in any way, please get in touch by calling or fill out our online form

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

Healing Bus team working with the Hope Chapel Church in 2017

The Healing Bus is entirely run by volunteers, all money received is used directly and solely for the work of The Healing Bus ministry.

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.

We don’t charge for our prayer service, Its totally Free. Please just give us a call or email us anytime, anywhere, any place. We would love to hear from you. 

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”.
