Bethel Sozo

During the current Covit-19 outbreak Sozo appointments will be on zoom.
Any financial contribution that would normally be made to us, should go instead to either Bethany Christian Trust or Marie Curie Cancer, both of whom are supporting those with needs in our communities through these challenging times.


We offer inner healing prayer as part of the support we want to make available within the church community.  The model we use is called SOZO which originated in Bethel church, Reading, California, designed by Dawna Desilva and Teresa Liebscher.

The word sozo is a Greek word used in the New Testament translated variously as saved, healed or delivered and has the implication of wholeness.

In Sozo prayer we offer an individual a session lasting two and a half hours. Sessions are on a Thursday morning, afternoon or evening, or Friday morning. During a session you would normally meet with two people. They would be inviting God to highlight wounds that He wants to heal and to reveal lies unconsciously believed. Where these wounds and lies have created an obstacle between you and God we want to see these removed and a closer connection to the Godhead created. Our goal in Sozo prayer is for people to be free to make good choices.

Lesley and the rest of the team have all been trained to lead Sozo prayer, and are long standing members of the CCE family. We are part of the Bethel Sozo UK Network.
