On Sundays we meet together to worship across a variety of services. each service has a different approach and feel but all provide space to explore our faith, support each other, and pray for our community and world. 

In addition to Sundays, STBBC runs Messy Church on Monday afternoons and we join each other throughout the week for small groups and activities.

 

10AM WEEKLY

Our weekly morning service welcomes everyone and is great for families.

Creche (0-2), Kids Club (3-11) and Pulse (11+) run during the service with tea, coffee and biscuits provided after the service.

 The service is generally just over an hour long and is followed by tea and coffee in the foyer and Large Lounge.


3PM MONTHLY

Our monthly afternoon service is a traditional worship service on the second Sunday of each month, including hymns and the Lord’s Prayer.

It’s a service where all are welcome regardless of age and is followed by tea and cake. Transport can often be provided for those in the Shoeburyness and Thorpe Bay area who can’t get here on their own.

To request transport please contact us and we will endeavour to arrange a lift for you.


7PM WEEKLY

Our weekly evening service has a more informal, creative and contemporary feel which is reflected in the sung worship and the sermon.

The service is generally just over an hour long and is followed by tea, coffee and toast in our Large Lounge.

WHAT TO EXPECT

 

We would love to see you at any of our services.  As you arrive you’ll be greeted by one of our stewards and offered a notice sheet which contains information about what is happening during the coming week.  Our services are usually led by one of our Pastors and begin with a time of sung worship followed by the Bible readings and a talk relating to those readings.  Our services also include notices, times of prayer, and sometimes hearing about a particular group, event, or ministry in the life of STBBC.

Communion is served twice a month, once at a morning service and once at an evening service.  We share this meal together to celebrate the death and the resurrection of Jesus and the ongoing work of God in the world.  It is open to all who love God.  Small pieces of bread are serviced on plates that are passed around the congregation as we remember Jesus’ body.  This is followed by a small cup of non-alcoholic red juice which we then drink together remembering Jesus’ blood.

There’s no dress code, and you’ll be welcome whatever your background, age or experience of faith.   
Pick up a Welcome Bag on your first visit and you’ll get all the key information about STBBC as well as some water and Fairtrade chocolate.

Please don’t be afraid to talk to any of our leaders, stewards, volunteers or the person sitting next to you.  Tell them you’re new and feel free to ask them any questions you may have or just say hello.

If you have any questions about Sundays or if you'd like to arrange for someone to specifically meet you when you arrive for the first time, please contact us.
