Church Life

Church life doesn’t just happen on a Sunday. As well as our 10:30am and 6:30pm Sunday meetings, there are various other ways that we connect during the week.

Below are some of the regular things that take place. For the most recent information please sign up to our monthly newsletter and keep an eye on the announcements shown on screen before and after the services.

‘Welcome to the Bay’ Evenings

These evenings take place two or three times a year and provide an opportunity for people who have recently joined, or are thinking of joining, to meet the Core Team leaders. There will be time to hear more about what we believe God is calling us to as a church, and a chance to receive prayer. For more information please speak to any of the Core Leaders.

Prayer

Prayer is vital to our Christian lives both personally and corporately. We have a number of different prayer meetings and gatherings each month including our corporate prayer meeting where we pray for our church and the region. Look out for the announcements for further details.

Small Groups

We know that the way we relate to one another demonstrates the Kingdom and God’s heart for family. There are a number of different ways to engage in smaller groups who meet regularly for the purpose of developing friendships and connections, and ultimately having more honest, vulnerable and mutually-supportive relationships with one another. Look out for family nights, pop-up groups and mid-week smaller groups.

Healing Rooms

God is interested in every aspect of our lives and that includes our physical well-being. The Bay Healing Rooms is simply a space where prayer for physical healing is offered. For more details and for session times, please visit our Healing Rooms Facebook page: www.facebook.com/BayHealingRooms

Sozo

Bethel Sozo is an inner healing and deliverance ministry in which the main aim is to get to the root of those things hindering your personal connection with Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Sozo is the Greek word which means ‘saved, healed, delivered.’ It is simple, fast, and Spirit-led, helping to heal issues in minutes instead of years.

Parish Nursing

Parish nurses are qualified Christian nurses who work within a parish or church community.
Our mission statement is
‘To improve the lives of people in the local community through whole person health care.’
In NHS nurses are unfortunately unable to mention or discuss their faith with patients without the risk of disciplinary action.
Parish nursing is a recognised Christian organisation whereby the nurse can pray with patients if requested.
Parish nurses are as well as and not in place of statutory agencies. And as such we do not do nursing duties such as dressings , personal care or administer injections.   We do however spend time with patients listening, helping with benefit advice; medication queries, counselling etc, as well as signpost to appropriate agencies.
