Spiritual Growth

Advent Everyday

The writer to the church in Ephesus describes faith as a gift of God, ‘not the result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.’ (Eph. 2:8-10)

Advent Everyday is a way of celebrating what God has done and is doing in our lives through Christ. Faith is a gift and a pilgrimage – a journey toward God, with God and because of God. We are making this pilgrimage in company together, as a witness in the world to the love and grace of God through Christ.

Each week we will make our pilgrimage through portions of Jeremiah, Daniel, Isaiah, and Luke. Reading Scripture everyday, may the brief reflections of Southside UC congregation members add to your own prayerful meditations on what the Holy Spirit is whispering to you this Advent season.

God bless.

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.

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 the church office 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.

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.
