The Heart to Heart Healing Centre provides Christian prayer to all who seek it for the purpose of general healing, including spiritual and physical conditions. The Centre is located in a storefront at 26 Brock St. W. Uxbridge, Ontario, L9P 1P3, Canada and is staffed by volunteers during posted opening hours.
The reason for being in a storefront in the downtown area of Uxbridge is to make the Centre accessible to all who would like to make use of its services. This also makes it possible to offer the services to people who may not have an association with a church or who would otherwise feel reticent about going into a church.
