What we believe
The Bible uses a number of words or expressions to describe "Church" one of these is "Family".
For a family to flourish it must:
- Share common values
- Enjoy good relationships
- Meet regularly
South Hill Church is big on family and families!
Week to week we have a broad range of groups to get involved in including:
- Family Care Groups
- Action Groups
- Interest Groups
- Prayer Groups
We encourage all who are part of South Hill Church to join one of our growing number of groups which meet regularly.
The aim is to provide a network within the church to encourage everyone to engage with the vision, grow in personal faith, and support one another in living out our faith in an open and inclusive way.
