Our Therapeutic Approach combines Counselling Skills & Ministry Tools such as Inner Healing & Prayer Ministry

Times of Refreshing Ministries (TRM) is a counselling agency that was established in 1983 to bring Christian help to those who are in emotional or spiritual need, and finding it difficult to prosper.

Those who serve within the Ministry are trained in a variety of professional & ministry skills and have backgrounds in various denominations; but all share common belief in the Power of the Holy Spirit for everyday life matters. We use an Integrated Christian Model of Therapy which includes Counselling Skills & Ministry Tools such as Inner-Healing and Prayer Ministry to help individuals who are hurting.

Times of Refreshing Ministries (TRM) is also a teaching and equipping agency.

We offer a variety of courses and programs for individuals and groups who also have the desire to minister God’s help and healing to others, to see the captives set free from emotional and spiritual bondages.

Through many years of ministry we have come to realise it is not only the hurting community that needs help but that many are without knowledge of the power that God has given us for life; others have the knowledge but lack confidence in applying it to life’s circumstances. For this reason, we have grown into additional dimensions such as teaching, spiritual formation/spiritual direction, life-coaching and mentoring, to motivate and empower each believer to reach his/her full destiny in Christ.

Please spend a little time browsing our web pages and catch the ethos of what we endeavour to provide here in Ireland and further afield.

Get in touch to discuss any needs you might have and we’ll be happy to have an initial chat and see if we can help.

We are a registered charity so that we can make our services available to all regardless of their circumstances and affordability, but equally we rely on those who can afford it to contribute in proportion to their means. For suggested contribution guidelines click here

Counselling | Inner Healing | Deliverance | Prayer Ministry

Times of Refreshing Ministries (TRM) offers a voluntary counselling service to the people of Northern Ireland and beyond who are suffering from issues of anxiety, depression, abuse, social phobias, spiritual matters and many other problems.

Counsellors at TRM are all trained, experienced and equipped with skills of maturity, wisdom, understanding and compassion. All counsellors are subject to external supervision ensuring safe & best practice for all clients.

TRM adheres to the ethical and professional standards of the Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC) who exist to facilitate provision by Christians of quality counselling and pastoral care.

TRM operates a strictly confidential and voluntary service to the public regardless of background or orientation.

We have counselling rooms in Belfast (on the Ravenhill Road) & Mid-Ulster (in Magherafelt) where we place emphasis on the importance of comfort and relaxation and so ensure that our counselling environment is warm, friendly and secure.

We can also offer services through telephone and Zoom.

After counselling, the outcome for many people is a release from feelings of helplessness, loss and confusion and an ability to feel more able to play a responsible role in family life and society in general.

Our counsellors are able to integrate a variety of counselling skills from psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural and person-centred theories, depending on the unique needs of each client, to help uncover distorted thoughts and beliefs in order to renew the mind.

Inner Healing & Prayer Ministry

What differentiates us from other mainstream counselling services is that we approach problems on the basis that we are tri-party beings with issues of the Spirit as well as the Soul (Mind, Will, Intellect & Emotions) and Body and we work with the Holy Spirit to bring revelation on root causes of problems and seek Inner Healing to affected areas of Spirit, Soul and Body.

Teaching | Coaching | Mentoring

We use a variety of ways to teach and equip individuals, leaders and prayer ministry teams who desire to minister God’s help and healing to others, to see the captives set free from emotional and spiritual bondages and effect the proclamation of Isaiah 61:1-2.

Spiritual Formation | Spiritual Direction | Christian Life-Coaching

Over the many years of ministry we have come to realise it is not only the hurting community that need help but that many Christians are without knowledge of the power that God has given us for life.  Also, many that have knowledge but lack confidence in applying it to life’s circumstances.  As such, we have grown into additional dimensions of teaching, spiritual formation, spiritual direction, creative therapeutic techniques, Christian life-coaching and mentoring, to motivate and empower each believer to reach his/her full destiny in Christ.  We are each unique and learn and hear from God in different ways.

Times of Refreshing Ministries (TRM) was established in 1983 to bring Christian help to those who are in emotional or spiritual need and finding it difficult to prosper.

We use an integrated Christian model of Prayer Ministry, Counselling, Inner-Healing & Deliverance to help individuals. We believe that God wants us to be

…more than conquerors through Him who loved us.  Romans 8:37

To be that conquering person, we need not only to be aware of the complex and often confusing powers that work against us –

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge Hosea 4:6

but we also need to access the ways in which

God will indeed supply all our needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus  Philippians 4:19

We rely on and are committed to be guided, led, at all times by the Power of the Holy Spirit who is after all our “Wonderful Counsellor” (Isaiah 9:6), the one whom Jesus spoke about,

…the parakletos, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things  John 14:26

History

The TRM Ministry is the product of the vision and effort of a small group of people, who have had a passion in God to release people from troublesome issues in their lives; things that prevent them from getting closer to their Father God.

From the early concept of this work back in 1983 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, until the present day, Times of Refreshing Ministries has sought to bring Godly knowledge and understanding to every believer, so that they, in turn, could minister God’s help and healing to others.

In those early days, the Holy Spirit engraved in our spirits an understanding from the biblical reference

My people are destroyed for lack of Knowledge. Hosea 4:6

This inspires us and continues to motivate us in all we do.

Over the years, and through all TRM’s encounters with people, we have realised the ever-increasing harmful influences that people struggle with, and which, therefore, obstruct them from rising to their calling in God.

Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Hebrews 12:1-2

For these reasons, TRM has produced and continues to produce, a variety of teaching and training initiatives to help in equipping those who have a desire to rise in their calling of setting the captives free from emotional and spiritual bondage and go on to help others to do the same.

For the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the Body of Christ. Ephesians 4:12

In May 1996 Brian Patton officially founded Times of Refreshing Ministries (T.R.M.) a dynamic ministry, not only to meet the needs of a hurting community but with an additional dimension, to motivate and empower each believer to reach his/her full destiny in Christ.

T.R.M. believe God’s glory is coming to the Body of Christ in an unprecedented way. This is a time of preparation; putting things into God’s order. The need for cleansing and equipping of His Body is paramount for the personal purity and power which will be essential to manifest the Glory of God to a lost world. After many years of experience in anointed ministry to individuals, God has now called us to cleanse, train and equip groups both locally and internationally for latter day ministry. T.R.M. is a member of Resurrection Apostolic International Network (R.A.I.N) based in Minnesota, USA. This is an apostolic movement of pastors, churches, trans-local ministries, and missionaries, with a common vision- a mandate from God for revival, spiritual awakening, and to fulfill the great commission through strengthening the local church to go forward in power and wholeness.

The TRM People

Founder & Director: Brian Patten

In June 1996 Charmiane joined T.R.M. as administrator

Statement of Faith
We believe in the imminent outpouring of God’s Spirit, His glory rising as a wave to encompass the globe. The King is coming for His bride and this is a time of preparation. We must be ready. The bride makes herself ready (Rev. 19:8) and T.R.M. is committed to helping the bride come to that state of readiness.

Our name is based on the biblical truths found in the Bible, in Book of Acts Chapter 3:19.

“Repent then and turn to God so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord”. NIV
