Worship and Prayer

These will not take place in the normal way. We are using technology to collectively continue worshipping and praying. Use the contact details at the bottom of the page to find out more.

The words of the Bible remain true, as they always will:

Psalm 46 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble. 

Thy Kingdom Come


We have a wonderful opportunity to be part of something big that God is doing in our day: Everyone involved - Oldest to youngest, bold prayer warrior to total beginner and everything in between.

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus.

Find more information and resources here: Thy Kingdom Come.

God is awakening more of us to his call to pray, and to partner with each other and him in praying for and bringing people to Jesus. So, each of us who is part of SOBC and anyone who would like to join us, is invited to join in one of 5 activities over the period from Ascension Day to Pentecost. (May 21st – May 31st). During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, the hope is that you will:

  • Deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ

  • Pray for 5 friends or family to come to faith in Jesus

  • Pray for the empowerment of the Spirit that we would be effective in our witness

There will five different activities. You can choose which one you join. Each activity will have it’s own group to do something together or support one another. There is a wide choice to give everyone the chance to be involved at the level the suits you. Please do get involved. Prayer matters. 

  1. Ten minutes a day praying together online

  2. Hour a day together online

  3. Phone encouragement group

  4. WhatsApp encouragement group

  5. Creative prayer

Contact Steve to find out more and and to let him know which you choose to do.

At this challenging time, we can still recognise that there is a loving, powerful God. One of our members produced this picture whilst praying and praising God despite many difficult personal circumstances. We thought we'd share this for your encouragement.

We would like to pay tribute to our dear friend and church member, Sara Trollope, who died on 10 April of Covid-19.


She had generosity of spirit, wisdom and compassion. She had wonderful abilities as a matron, a heart for her family and for other people, and a great sense of humour.

On becoming a Christian, she listened for God’s voice and heard from him - often to the benefit of others. We know where she has gone: she is with Jesus. It was an absolute privilege to know her in this life. Those of us who have also put our trust in God, know one day we will see her once again.
