Services & Meetings
Our main meetings are on Sundays at 10.30am and 6.30pm. At our meetings we sing hymns and songs, read from the Bible and pray. Because we believe the Bible is God’s Word, teaching from the Bible forms a central part in all our meetings.
We celebrate Communion twice a month, the evening service of the first Sunday of the month and the morning service of the third Sunday of the month. We invite everybody to share Communion with us.
Our meetings are informal, with no set prayers or liturgy. You do not need to dress in a certain way to come along. There are often “open times”, particularly in our evening service, when people can contribute a prayer, or a Bible reading or a suggestion for a song to sing. But you do not have to contribute to meetings, you can just listen if you want to. We also hold regular Family Services, which tend to be very dynamic and full of energy!
We use the New International Version of the Bible. Copies are available at meetings, and generally the page number is announced so that everyone can follow along. We use the “Songs of Fellowship” hymn book as our main source for hymns and we usually have the words displayed on a large screen via a data projector.
There is a Sunday School for children which takes place during the morning service. Children are welcome at all meetings. If you have a young child we have a selection of toys and activities at the back of Church for them to play with.
We also have an Audio Loop for those with difficulty hearing.
Daytime Housegroup at 12noon on Tuesday, Nurture Group for younger Christians 7.30pm on Thursday. Other groups at 7.30pm Wednesdays. Check with Leaders or the Notice Sheet for venues. We actively encourage everybody who attends SBC to join and participate in House Groups as an aid to relationship building and spiritual growth.
Open to all, held at the Church at 9.30am on Thursdays. Now also on Sunday morning at 10am. Corporate prayer is the engine room of the church. Come and see what God is doing and saying to us as a body.
