Our desire at Southminster is to offer a caring community in which all feel welcome, supported and valued - a place for adults, youth and children to explore Christian faith and express it in action. We speak a warm welcome to people of differing ages, abilities, sexual orientations, income levels, religious backgrounds and cultures.
Southminster is interested in you, and in reaching out to all of our neighbours to explore with you the spiritual longings, wisdom and questions that brought you to this site.
Worship at Southminster blends traditional interests with an eagerness to try new things and to open worship to the particular gifts and inspirations of those who worship with us.
