SOMA is a Christian ministry which works for the transformation of individuals, churches and the healing of communities and lands through the renewing power of the Holy Spirit through intercession, prayer and short-term multicultural, cross-cultural teams.
SOMA’s Call is to ‘care for the nervous system of the Body of Christ’.
SOMA’s ministry is to facilitate encounter with the Holy Spirit to empower and equip leaders for their own mission and ministry.
SOMA’s heart is relationship, expressed by long-term intercession and prayer, and sending and receiving short-term multicultural, cross-cultural teams.
SOMA does not have a set programme or product. For each Mission we build a unique, flexible programme to address the issues facing the delegates identified by the inviting host that are within SOMA’s call and ministry and, as the Mission progresses, adapt the programme to the issues revealed by the Holy Spirit through intercessors, delegates and team.
Typically, a team of five or six travel to a Diocese at the invitation of the Bishop to facilitate retreat conferences for clergy, women’s leaders, youth leaders, congregational leaders, evangelists, catechists and readers.
Covid-19 Update April 2021
Positively, the pandemic has heavily underlined the apical importance of intercession and prayer in SOMA’s call and ministry, and of our long-term relationships with those abroad. It has been a delight and an encouragement to hear from those friends of their appreciation of our commitment to them in prayer and intercession.
Yet, sadly, it seems we will be unlikely to send teams for a while. SOMA teams will travel again when it’s safe enough for those who receive us to willingly gather with team members who have travelled from abroad, there is an acceptably low level of risk of carrying Covid-19 infection to them, and governments’ quarantine requirements allow. As ever, the safety of those to whom we go is of paramount importance to us.
