New to SBC
If you are wondering what you might experience when you visit SBC for the first time, here are some of the values we try to promote at SBC.
What to expect
- A warm welcome
Firstly, everyone is welcome. We are made up of people from diverse backgrounds across different age groups, so you are likely to meet similar people to you. We strive to demonstrate God's love in our welcome to all visitors, whether you've never been to church, you are looking for a new church family, or just passing through the area.
- Christ centred worship
We have all been made to worship God alone and to enjoy Him forever. We therefore spend time praising Him through songs (both old and new), fellowship with Him in prayer and honour Him by listening to His word (the Bible) explained.
- Bible based teaching
God continues to speak to His people and His world today through the Bible. Teaching from God's word is a central feature of SBC, and our aim is for the Bible to be explained and applied in a relevant way for people seeking to follow Jesus in the 21st century.
- Loving community
SBC provides an opportunity to develop real relationships with real people. We rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. God wants our relationships to honour Him and we believe support should always be seen in both what we say and what we do.
- Ministering Together
The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few. If God has saved you for good works and you are looking for a place to serve Him, we have plenty of opportunities at SBC. We encourage everyone at SBC to use their gifts and talents to advance God's kingdom, for his glory!
