Relics

2 Kings 13 v 21 And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that, behold, they spied a band of men; and they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisha: and when the man was let down, and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived, and stood up on his feet.

ACTS 19 v 11 And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: 12 So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.

We also have been blessed by having a number of second class relics of St John in our church. Furthermore, we are in the unusual and wonderful position of being able to make different relics available for veneration at different times throughout the year. These are loaned to us often to coincide with specific feast days. Everybody is welcome to venerate these relics.
