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! 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. We do this through conversation before and after the service, and through worshipping God.

What's it like?

Our worship services typically last an hour. After singing, reading the Bible and praying, a sermon is delivered during which children have the option of attending Sunday School. Our music includes both traditional hymns and contemporary songs; the main accompanying instruments are piano and double-bass, with the occasional acoustic guitar, violin or cello. 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? (logistics and practicalities)

You don't need to bring anything with you except a desire to learn about or worship God. You are welcome to just show up - there is no need to ask for an invite or permission to attend (we are below our COVID-19 capacity). Our service begins at 10:30 am, but we suggest you show up a few minutes early. Access for those with mobility concerns is available via the side entrance to the left of the church. There is no assigned seating - sit where you would like. 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.

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). Some in our congregation are bilingual and read a parallel version on their phone.
