An overview of our healing meetings
We would appreciate people arriving early to be ready to worship at 2:30pm. We would ask everyone to enter into the presence of God as they come through the door and get ‘caught up’ in praise and worship. After a quality time of praise and worship, we share God’s Word followed by prayer ministry relevant to the preached message. The service will usually finish at approximately 5:00pm.
If you have travelled a long way and would appreciate a drink upon your arrival, please see a steward. Stewards are available throughout the service should you have any urgent needs. Immediately after the service, free drinks are available along with sandwiches and cakes for purchase.
There is an extensive range of books, CDs and DVDs available, some of which are not available from mainstream Christian bookshops. The message of the day is also available on CD or DVD at the bookstall immediately after the service.
After Service Fellowship
A great chance to get to know others from all over England and fellowship over a cup of tea! Please feel free to stay and share, pray and encourage one another.
Prayer Ministry (TIMES TBC)
We are in faith that your needs will be met during the service so please respond to all the ministry offered during the Word. If you decide after the meeting that you would still like personal prayer, please see a steward who will direct you to have that arranged.
We appreciate that most people want to be seen as early as possible, but we use our discernment over the timing of appointments and endeavour to help as many as possible.
Children are encouraged to fully take part in the service. That can either be with their parents or by joining the Faith School leaders and other children. The leaders join together with the children for the praise and worship, then during the Word the children go off to their own meeting. “Abraham’s Children” is a group for those aged 3 to 13. Children are escorted to and from their meetings by the leaders.
After the main meeting we have “After Sozo Club”. By signing your child in and out, they can be supervised until 8:00pm for fun, games, arts and crafts. Every leader has been fully police checked and approved. We adhere to the Church Child Protection Agency (see below).
This information is here to benefit all who come to our meetings. Sozo Ministries International has a Child Protection Policy in place which has been formulated in consultation with the Churches Child Protection Agency. We include an extract from the policy below for your reference.
