January 2016
It is now seven years since Paul Skelton had the vision of moving the Churches out on the streets in Bath to demonstrate God’s love and healing. As a pioneer, Paul not only established the Healing On The Streets (HOTS) team that meets in Bath Abbey Square each week, to invite members of the public to receive prayer for supernatural healing, but also trained, equipped and fathered teams locally, nationally and internationally. Subsequently, over these years there have been countless healings, spiritual encounters and salvations on the streets, through HOTS and their mission trips.

Over the past year, Paul has been sensing in the Spirit that he has faithfully run the race of guiding the HOTS Bath team that was set before him and has now completed the task, like Barnabas and Paul did in Acts 12.25, “When Barnabas and Saul had finished their mission, they returned from Jerusalem.” Paul is currently on sabbatical and when this ends in January, he will move on and focus on other areas of ministry the Lord is calling him to.

The HOTS Bath Trustees fully support Paul in his decision and release him with thanks and blessings for the next part of his journey. Having prayed this through over a long period of time, the HOTS Bath Trust has unanimously agreed that HOTS Bath will continue to provide the local service that has been established, continuing to draw teams from churches in the city and surrounding area.

However, it will no longer focus on developing other national or international teams, and will therefore not seek to replace Paul in the position he held. Further information will be given in the near future regarding management of HOTS teams in Bath for 2016.

Both Paul and the HOTS Bath Trust are grateful to all those who have contributed to the vision to date, and look forward to seeing more fruit for the Kingdom, as led by the Holy Spirit.
