Welcome to our website!

Our passion is to see every church equipped to care for hurting people, however deep the hurt. We need each other in this most important task that Jesus has given us; it is a great privilege to be able to join together to love others in His name.

About Heart for Truth

Heart for Truth is all about encouraging and teaching Christian leaders and those who care for others. We want to see Christians from all backgrounds increase in confidence and faith as they step out of the boat and go the second mile to see the wounded in their churches and communities walk into freedom and wholeness.

We are aware that there are lots of people in our fellowships struggle to cope with the effects of trauma and live with mental health problems. There are increasing numbers grappling with all kinds of overwhelming challenges from past abuse to present poverty; disappointments to depression; bullying to bulimia. We also know that nothing is too hard for God, and that He has blessed us with all we need in Christ to grow in real freedom, and to lead others into that place of healing.

How we can help

 

We offer a range of services to train and equip your Christian group, church or organisation. Carolyn can:

• come to speak to your whole church, or a group of leaders or pastoral workers
• offer one to one support for those working with hurting or traumatised people
• facilitate small group workshops

Counsellors

We like to encourage counsellors and churches to work together in identifying the key issues that need to be addressed, and the lies that need to be replaced with truth. By working together, a long-term plan can be made that will embrace all the resources that counsellors and churches have together, thus providing joined-up support

Pastoral carers

Sometimes, no matter how much love and prayer you give, people still don’t get better. People who have been really hurt in the past often get stuck, and then we feel frustrated because we can’t help them move out of that place. It helps a lot if we have an understanding of what’s going on

Church leaders

We appreciate the tremendous strain church leaders can be under, especially when there are individual members who require extra compassion and time over the long haul. You may sometimes find yourself wondering if you really should be devoting that much energy energy and resources to one or two when you have a whole congregation to care for. Our approach will help you to develop tools you can offer others in your church and so teach them to love and care for each other with knowledge and effectiveness – “intelligent loving”.

Testimonies

“Truth Teams are a fundamental part of a hurting person’s journey to being whole in Christ. The Truth Team I had were, and still are, amazing! I couldn’t have done it without them and would encourage others to have one. Great support and understanding along the whole journey to freedom.”

Sarah, Surrey

On the day our Truth Team was set up I was drowning… My Truth Team of seven people was literally life or death for me… three months after my team was set up I was whole. For the first time I was one person instead of 76 fragmented parts… my Truth Team have become my precious family; the transformation in me has been amazing.”

Faith, Suffolk
