Sunday worship service

Note: SBBC has resumed in-person attendance at services following the COVID-19 pandemic. You are warmly invited to join us at the church. We have modified seating and other arrangements to help keep everyone safe.

If you are in the Hobart area, please join us for our Sunday morning service! Although we also have important activities through the week, Sunday morning is when the entire church meets together for worship. Our service commences at 10:30 am. Good Friday and Christmas Day services commence at 9:30 am.

Why meet together?

God doesn't intend for Christians to isolate themselves, but to meet together and encourage one another (Hebrews 10:25). We do this through conversation before and after the service, and through worshipping God. This is not out of obligation, but is done joyfully and enthusiastically, as we acknowledge God as all-powerful creator of the universe, and praise Him for the salvation that comes through Jesus Christ.

What's it like?

Our worship services typically last an hour (10:30-11:30 am). The congregation sings both traditional hymns and contemporary songs. The main accompanying instruments are piano and double-bass, with the occasional cello, violin or acoustic guitar. We don't have an 'officially preferred' Bible translation; commonly-used translations include the New International Version (NIV), New American Standard Bible (NASB) and New King James (NKJV). After singing, reading the Bible and praying, a sermon is delivered during which children have the option of attending Sunday School. The service itself is a more formal time as we focus on God and His Word, but we value Sunday morning fellowship and consequently most people stay for tea/coffee and some morning tea afterwards. Once a month we have a church lunch which gives a more extended time to get to know one another over a meal.

What to bring?

We have no 'dress code'; God deserves our best in all things, but we believe that He is firstly interested in our hearts rather than our physical appearance. You don't need to bring anything with you except a desire to learn about or worship God.
