About Us


Who can visit the Healing Rooms?

The Healing Rooms are for anyone who has a physical condition or illness. We do not offer a counselling service.

For example you may:

  • be waiting for an operation
  • have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness
  • have a chronic condition or illness
  • have a stress-related illness
  • have a condition that is not serious

Even if you are not ill, you may know a friend, neighbour or family member who may benefit from a visit to the Healing Rooms.

Both adults and children can receive prayer, although children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or responsible adult.

You don’t need to go to church or have a religious background or beliefs – and we won’t put you under any pressure regarding this!

What can you expect?

  • Prayer for healing
  • Confidential and Private
  • Run like a surgery with consulting rooms
  • Comfortable and pleasant surroundings
  • Trained people to pray for you
  • No appointment necessary
  • Come back as often as you like

Where it all started

John G Lake
“A man of Healing”

John Graham Lake was a man of purpose, vision, strength and character, his one goal in life was to bring the fullness of God to every person.

Born in Ontario, Canada in 1870, his family relocated to the United States, where he grew up. His healing and preaching ministry spanned the years 1898 until his death in 1935.
In 1908, God sent him to Africa, where his anointed miracle ministry resulted in what has been described as “the most extensive and powerful missionary movement in all Africa”.
Upon his return to America, Lake established his “Healing Rooms” ministry in Spokane, Washington, which resulted in no less than 100,000 healings within the space of five or six years.
So incredible was this healing ministry, that according to statistics, the U.S. Government declared his city, Spokane, Washington, to be the healthiest city in America.

In July 1999 the Healing Rooms were reopened by Cal Pierce who had been called by God from Redding, California to Spokane, Washington. That was the beginning of the Healing Rooms Ministries that has since gone around the world.
