The Bethel Sozo Ministry was created to aid individuals in inner healing, freedom and connection to the Godhead. Since 1998, the Bethel Sozo Ministry has been traveling across the United States and internationally; training, equipping, and empowering other churches and organisations to start their own Sozo Ministry.

What is Sozo?

The Sozo ministry is a unique inner healing and deliverance ministry in which the main aim is to get to the root of those things hindering your personal connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Thus with a healed connection with Father, Son and Holy Spirit you can walk in the destiny to which you have been called.  A Sozo appointment is not counselling but a facilitated session connecting you with the Father, Jesus or the Holy Spirit. Aspects of the appointment will be to identify wounds resulting from perceived or actual experiences and unmet needs; the renouncing of any lies associated with those experiences; and a truth encounter with the Godhead.

  • Sozo is an inner healing/deliverance ministry
  • Sozo is simple, fast, Spirit led and effective
  • Sozo finds issues in minutes instead of years
  • Sozo helps heal your relationship with God to enable you to fulfil your destiny 

Sozo at River Church

We have a growing lively group of men and women in River Church who have been taught the Sozo ministry principles, some have attended both Basic and Advanced courses led by Bethel staff Teresa Liebscher and Dawna Da Silva, or from in-house training. Additionally, we are also connected with the UK representatives of Bethel Sozo UK for mentoring and regional Sozo networking.

We offer Sozo appointments to any adults who would like to come for a facilitated appointment; you do not have to be a member of River Church. We can offer appointments to young people in consultation with parents/guardians.


In recognition of the value of the time spent ministering to you, there is a suggested donation of £20* to help develop the Sozo ministry in River. Our strong preference is that you give via credit or debit card online immediately after submitting your application.
Please don’t let this deter you applying for an appointment, if you cannot afford this amount then please contact us.
* The minimum donation is £1. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via 

Unfortunately due to a very long waiting list and a reduced team, with limited availability, we have taken the decision to close the list to non-River Church members for the time being, as we would not be able to offer you an appointment for up to 12 months. We are very sorry for the inconvenience of this and hope to have the list open again as soon as possible. In the meantime, you may be able to find an appointment at one of the other Sozo centres listed at
