Praise, Worship & the Word of God

The first of these is the widely acclaimed Alpha Course. The Alpha has proved to be a fantastic means of introducing both people outside the church and new believers to the Christian faith. The 9-week course sets out to answer questions like "Is Christianity boring, irrelevant and untrue?", "Who is Jesus?", "Why did Jesus die ?", "Does God heal today?", and many, many other issues. The course itself is held in a very informal atmosphere, starting with light refreshments and a chat, then a short topical talk, after which there is an open questions and answers session.

The second stage is a new Believers Group which new Christians will be encouraged to attend. This essentially teaches the fundamentals of the Christian faith, again in a very informal and relaxed environment. Participants are encouraged to contribute and feedback to ensure that the course not only educates and informs, but allows any burning questions to be addressed.

The final step of the three-stage process is the Commitment Group, where candidates become familiar with all aspects of the Church's vision and the part they can play in accomplishing it. After completion of the Commitment Group, they will have the option of becoming church partners.


  The Bible (the Word of God) is the spiritual food and energy source of every born-again Christian believer. Hebrews 4 verse 12 tells us that “The word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart”.

  It is therefore vital that we have as good a knowledge and understanding of the Word of God as possible, as well as a personal and intimate relationship with its Inspirer, so we are able to effectively apply its wisdom to our daily lives.

SCC believe that everyone should reach their full God-given potential, and has a structured program for new Christians to progress in their faith, which has 3 clear stages - (A-B-C) :

SCC currently meet in Mapledene Primary School hall, right at the heart of the Sheldon community, and you can always be assured of a very warm welcome by our stewarding team on arrival!
  Our services are lively, with vibrant worship and heart-felt prayer, and, as true ‘pentecostals’, we believe in the leading and the gifts of the Holy Spirit in our services, as first demonstrated by the early New Testament church. There’s a “kids’ spot” in every service, as we like to engage with our young people, and this is all followed by the preaching of the Word of God.
