The world is growing and changing rapidly; but the gospel of Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. There are millions of men, women and children around the world who do not know Jesus because they live in areas where there is little opportunity to hear about Him.
At Southside, Global Mission is one of our cherished values.
Because we believe that Jesus can transform lives across borders and cultures, we partner with brothers and sisters who have “beautiful feet”, and who proclaim the love of Jesus in places we cannot be. We are a church that partners with others in prayer, with our finances, with our support. We support 3 Mission Partners in secure locations (Central Asia, the Middle East, the Philippines). We pray regularly for them on a Sunday and across our Fellowship Groups and encourage others to get to know them.
We also have International Partners in various parts of God’s world. International Partners are Southsiders who are working overseas for a period of time and serving in local churches. God-willing they intend to return to Canberra and continue their ministry involvement with us. We regularly pray for our International Partners in church, at Bible Kids and in Solid Rock.
Prayer at Church, Fellowship Groups and at our Prayer Breakfasts. OMF Prayer meetings monthly. CMS prayer meetings across Canberra.
We also support Compassion and partner with them in sponsoring children in the Philippines.
Our Global Mission teams are the first point of call in supporting our Mission Partners. Speak to them if you wish to show the care and love of Christ to them.
We encourage Southsiders to read these 2 excellent publications: Let the Nations Be Glad (John Piper); Becoming Global (Bruce Dipple). We also support CMS Summer School in Katoomba (in January).
Consider going on a short-term or long-term mission assignment through a missionary agency. Speak to Dom for more details.
