Soaking Prayer

When and where

Free of charge, but booking is essential (use the link at the bottom of the page).

There is a Soaking Prayer session around once every two weeks – but you can view the full timetable here.

A session lasts around 50 minutes and takes place at either Dormer Place Conference Centre, Dormer Place, Leamington Spa CV32 5AA - see 'TMG' on the map below:

 or at Christ Church, 2 Priory Terrace, Leamington Spa, CV31 1BA. If you are at the bottom of Leamington Spa's Parade and turn left between All Saint's Parish Church and the Post Office, straight ahead of you is Priory Terrace.

What happens at a Soaking Prayer session?

Described by one guest as ‘spiritual massage’, Soaking Prayer is deeply relaxing and comforting. It's suited to anyone who wants to spend some time in stillness with God, and is especially beneficial for those struggling with illness and those who are in stressful situations. 

Unlike Healing Prayer, where guests are seen individually, these sessions accommodate up to 15 guests per session.

You arrive and we sign you in. When everyone is gathered, we start with a short talk on Father God’s love for us and then begin our actual 'soaking' time.

Practically speaking, this is a period of simple relaxation and reflection, sitting or lying down, with gentle music playing in the background. The Well’s trained prayer ministry team pray for each guest in turn, either silently or softly, asking the Holy Spirit to gently touch those places which hurt inside.

You might want to think of soaking prayer like this: imagine the ground is hard and dry.  If there is a sudden rain shower the water runs off the ground. But if there’s a gentle rainfall over a long period of time the ground will slowly become moist and the water soaks in.

Please bring a pillow and a blanket to make yourself comfortable and, if you want to lie on the floor, a mat.


If you are pregnant:

We no longer do Soaking Prayer specifically for pregnant women. But we do encourage women that are pregnant to attend our soaking prayer time. So that, our specially-trained team can quietly move around praying God’s blessing for you and your baby, for your health and wellbeing during pregnancy and birth, for your protection and safety and also for the destiny and future of your child.We believe the time a baby spends in their mother’s womb is a really important time physically, emotionally and spiritually.
