Duncan and Milly

One thing we love about Southside is that it makes no claims to be a perfect church, nor to be full of perfect people with perfect pastors running the show. 

We came to call Southside Bible Church our home church at the beginning of 2018 and have enjoyed settling into the life and activities of fellow believers who are eager to see newcomers welcomed. For both of us, we have found that Southside is wanting to model what it can look like to serve Jesus in our current setting whilst also being faithful to age old truths that we see from God’s wisdom expressed through scripture.

As relatively newly-weds, we have been blessed by many families that are eager to share their lives with us as we tread the path of marriage after them (though a unique path for all). We have also been encouraged by the opportunities to serve in areas that allow us to grow and use skills that we didn’t know we have, whether this be in the kid’s program, flipping sausages, running games nights, showing hospitality or lending an ear to someone who needs it.

One thing I love about Southside is that it makes no claims to be a perfect church, nor to be full of perfect people with perfect pastors running the show (they’d be the first to admit it too). This means that pretences of being perfect are put away and more time is spent on pointing to the one who is perfect. This honesty, especially in the leadership team, has been a blessing at Southside.
