Pastoral & Prayer Ministries

Pastoral Care

As we journey through life, there will be times we need some help in our daily lives, people to walk alongside us for a season, or to signpost and guide us to where to get help and support.

If you need practical help or pastoral support please contact the team.

Sunday Prayer

GodFirst has a dedicated prayer ministry team available during church services on Sundays. Whether directly after the preach or at the end of the service, there will be opportunity for individuals to access a member of this team.

Whether someone is prompted during the service, responds to a specific word or call, or has an existing need they came with, this is the time for them to receive prayer for their situation. During this time praying with someone from the ministry team on a Sunday morning, the person may feel they need more time and support.

There are also slots with the ministry team available during the week, offering short sessions of prayer by phone or video call. If you would like to respond to any of these options please contact us by clicking below.


Powerhouse is a meeting set up to give us time during the week to gather and worship God, enjoy His presence and learn to hear His voice for ourselves and others in our communities. It has a strong emphasis on prophetic intercession through activations and declarations


We are offering one hour slots where you can spend time with two of our team, who would love to pray with you.  We believe God has promised us freedom, joy and security whatever our circumstances, praying for healing, encouragement, wisdom in situations. The Oasis team are ready to walk with you in prayer.

We focus on the leading of the Holy spirit during these times and believe that God speaks personally to us when we seek him.

Bethel Sozo

We are pleased to be able to offer this type of prayer which is gentle, honouring and empowering and at the same time dealing with roots of issues and healing relationships with others and strengthening your relationship with Father God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
