Jesus tells us that the church "is the light of the world" (Matthew 5:14).
Southside Uniting Church takes seriously this charge to be active in sharing Christ's love locally, nationally and internationally.

Southside Uniting Church is a member of the Queensland Community Alliance. Together with other religious groups, unions and community development organisations we engage in advocacy and community development in our region.
Spiritual Growth covers key elements of the life of the Christian Church, including discipleship, bible studies, developing spiritual leaders and identifying people who have a calling on their lives for future ministry and mission engagement. As One Congregation in Four Locations, Southside seeks to build our unified identity through our spiritual commitment, by developing ourselves to discipleship we can find out more about our identity in Christ and as members of this unique community in the life of our church.

There are a number of styles of worship offered through Southside Uniting Church.
Our services run for between 60 t0 90 minutes. We sing, pray, hear scripture read and reflect on it's meaning for our daily living. During our Tarragindi and Mt Gravatt morning worship services there is a children's program (during school terms). At Yeronga and Holland Park we assist children to worship with their parent or care giver.
Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. We may offer it at other times.
Our worship in each of our communities may be different, but in all of them we are offering worship to God that is vibrant, Spirit-filled, relevant and Christ-centred.
As one church in multiple locations, we are keenly aware of the importance of pastoral care, since caring for each other is intrinsic to authentic Christian community and the heart and character of God. Christ proclaims in John 13:34-35 “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
Networks of pastoral care are established in each of our communities, so that we may live out our motto of pastoral care being for everyone, by everyone.
