29th March 2020 – Evening Service

We are having and evening of prayer and fasting via zoom, if you are not able to join us then you can still see the prayer points by clicking here. Material for this morning service can still be found below.

29th March 2020 – Morning Service

Whilst we are unable to meet together we are encouraging one another to lead a service in their homes each Sunday. The resources below provide a structure for you to do that, whether you gather as a family or are on your own.

1 – Watch the introduction video from Pastor Matthew

2 – Sing

Choose a few songs from the SRM Playlist below to sing. If you have children under the age of 11 with you, you might also want to choose some songs from the SRM Kids Playlist below. Try and sing out loud rather than just watch the videos – we may be in lockdown but the Lord is still worthy of our praise!

Playlist – Church Worship

Playlist – Kids Church – 5-11’s

Playlist – Mini Kids – Under 5’s

3 – Listen

The main sermon is recorded below for you to watch. If you are meeting with young children (5-11), you may want to use the children’s video Pastor Lucas has recorded (there are also some resources at the bottom of this page you could use with your children). You could then let the kids play whilst you listen to the main sermon, or spend some time listening to the main sermon later once the children are in bed.

Lucas’s Message

4 – Pray

Spend some time in prayer. The resource attached will give you some ideas of what to pray for, but you can add your own requests – either in response to the sermon or what is going on around us at the moment. Click here to download the prayer resource.

5 – Fellowship (Zoom)

One of the things we miss in not being able to meet together is the conversations we enjoy over tea and coffee after the service. This Sunday we’ll be having “Tea & Coffee” over zoom (12 -12.45pm). It’ll be a good chance to see each others faces, chat together, and get the hang of zoom if you haven’t used it before (it’s free to download – just use the link below). Look forward to seeing you there – you’ll have to bring your own cup of tea / coffee with you!

Topic: “Tea & Coffee”

Time: Mar 29, 2020 12:00 PM London


Meeting ID: 994 736 187

Discuss / Reflect

Below are some follow-up questions from both messages above. You might want to use these straight away to think through what you’ve heard, or you could use them later in the week in your growth groups on zoom.

Main Message

  • As we look ahead to hard times, which aspect of this Psalm do you find most encouraging?
  • Where do you turn for help in hard times? What do you trust in?
  • Why is the Lord a better fortress than these things?
  • In your experience, how does knowing that God is with you, help you overcome fear?
  • What might it look like to take refuge in the Lord over the coming weeks?
  • Where around you do you long for people to acknowledge God in all that is going on?

Children’s Message

  • What should we call God when we pray?
  • How can you help God’s will be done on earth?
  • Why do we need to forgive people when they hurt us?
  • What do you like to talk to God about?

For next week

Print out the last page of the worksheet available and write a prayer. Use the Lord’s prayer as a guide, but do your own prayer. When you finish, take a Picture of your prayer and send it to Lucas. Make sure you colour it to make it nice.
You can  send your prayer by email (lucasecoelho@gmail.com) or whatsapp (07450339633).Lucas will show them on video next week, so make sure they are sent in by Thursday at the latest.

Teaching kids to pray


It is important we continue to give during this time as part of our worship of God. In fact, giving in the midst of uncertainty is one of the ways we trust God. You may already give regularly through standing order, but if you would normally give through the weekly offering the easiest way to give now is either through the donate button below or by BACS transfer (Sunbridge Road Mission; 30055581; 20-11-81; Barclays).

We have also set up a coronavirus fund to help those who’ll struggle when things get harder economically in the coming weeks. If you would like to contribute to that on top of your normal giving please select ‘coronavirus fund’ from the dropdown on the donate page, or include ‘CV Fund’ in the reference with your BACS transfer.
