Julian Adams, Evangelist preacher "heals" 84-year-old who walked with a stick at Gloucester church
Citizen reporter Laura Enfield attended City Church this weekend to hear 'prophet' Julian Adams:
THERE was already a definite air of excitement when I walked into The City Church Gloucester on Saturday night.
A congregation of about 100 had gathered for the meeting – from babies to 80-year-olds.
There seemed to be a genuine feeling that Julian's presence would help miracles of healing to happen.

The service started with some worship, led by a band and then the South African-born Evangelist got up to speak.
He asked those who felt they had been healed the previous evening to talk about it.
One man said he had been blessed by his first night of unbroken sleep in years.
Julian then started preaching about Jesus healing the sick and said it must have been "awesome" to hang out with him.
Striving for healing will not work, he said, and nor will apathy. Instead he told people to "rest in his goodness" and know that God wants to heal.
He quoted the Bible passage 'Blessed is he who is not offended in Me', and said those who are not healed should not be angry at God. He then invited those who had an ailment to stand up and be prayed for by those around them. He said: "Don't be nice to these sicknesses. We don't like them. Command them to leave."
A hum of prayers rose up and some people fell on the floor or shook.
An 84-year-old lady, who I had previously seen walking in with a stick, said she was able to walk for the first time in years without it and did a little dance of joy.
Others came forward to say they had been healed of back problems and other ailments and there was applause and shouts of 'amen'.
There was joy in the air and people definitely felt they had witnessed God's power to heal. Whether or not they had been cured indefinitely, I don't know and he said only time would tell. But the congregation certainly believed in his abilities that night.
