Attending Southside services and serving in the music team has helped me stay rooted to the Word…

I grew up in a Christian family, so church life was never new to me. Attending services and Bible studies, and serving in worship ministry was an integral part of my life, even though I didn’t really understand why I did it. By God’s grace, He put people in my life that made me struggle and question who this God was that I said I believed in and served.

While it was terrifying to have a fundamental part of my life shaken, I came to realise that if I truly was a Christian I must make this decision for myself, not merely adopt my parents’ faith. While the popular culture fosters an environment where many reject God, attending Southside services and serving in the music team has helped me stay rooted to the Word. I appreciate that each sermon offers a detailed study of a Bible passage, which gives us a more comprehensive contextual understanding of how God intends to speak through His Word. Even more so, I am thankful for the kindness and warmth that the Southside community has shown to me and other international students in the Overseas Christian Fellowship. It is very encouraging to know that the church community, especially our Home and Away families, are behind us, supporting us in our journeys during our time here.
