From now until Easter we will be immersing ourselves in John's Gospel. We encourage you to be a part of the experience.

Read John in One Sitting

For those who are up for an extra challenge, read it in one sitting (or very few). You'll be able to notice the repetitions, rhythms, and 'feel' for John if you can read most or all of it at a time.

Listen to John in One Sitting

Richard Moors is planning to offer a Saturday morning, most likely in February, where John's gospel is read beginning to end. Stay tuned on the Events Page for more details.

Study John

Finally, Mal Coombes will be offering his insight and extensive study into John for us in March. More details to come on our Events Page.

We pray that by engaging in John in one or more of these ways will help you to grow in your relationship with Christ.

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 multiple 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.

To find out more about Spiritual Growth in Southside Uniting Church or to express your interest in joining a Small Group, please email jock.dunbar@ssuc.org.au or via our enquiries page.

Life Is Not Meant to Be Lived Alone

On a weekly or fortnightly basis groups of people meet in homes, over zoom and at our church buildings to encourage each other in their discipelship. When people meet in a small group they study the bible and apply it to their lives, the pray for each other and care deeply. They encourage each other in ministry. They eat, laugh, cry and share life together.

Our small groups are a place to belong, because you matter.

Currently, we have groups that meet on:

Monday morning

Monday afternoon

Monday night

Tuesday night

Thursday afternoon

Sunday night

There's always room for more groups and people.

Using a simple process, together we read the bible and share what it is that God is saying to us personally. We encourage each other in living this out during the week. Thursday mornings 7.30am to 8.15am on Zoom.

Please contact Jock Dunbar for more information and zoom connection details.

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.

For more information on our Outreach Groups please contact our Administrator Rachel Manton.



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 care are established in each of our communities, so that we may live out our motto of pastoral care being for everyone, by everyone.
