Minister's Welcome

all are welcome

YOU are welcome here!
That’s the spirit of South Church in Andover: an extravagant welcome to you, no matter where you are on your faith journey. This is a congregation that extends a warm welcome to people of all colors, cultures, abilities, and sexual orientation, to believers and questioners, and to questioning believers. Welcome to all who have no church home, need strength, want to follow Christ, have doubts, or do not believe. We joyfully and unconditionally welcome you and hope you find peace and inspiration in our service.

South Church is a church for children and youth. Children and youth are never considered a distraction but rather are welcomed, cherished, included and valued as an integral part of our life.

Come to South Church to discover…

.. a center for spiritual renewal, with messages to help you relate the teachings of the bible to your everyday life and music to lift up your spirit. The worship of God is the reason for our being.

.. a boot camp for Christian service. Worship and service form the foundation of our community of faith, so that what is wrought in the one is woven into the fabric of the other. The One we follow came not to be served but to serve, to stand with and to speak for the ones whom God named “the least of these, members of my family.”

.. an academy for teaching and learning about our faith. The most important content of the gospel is relationships: your relationship to God and to God’s children. At South Church, learn how to grow in those relationships.

.. a community which is like another family. The blessed tie that binds us together makes us like a family -- caring for one another, taking meals to one in need, praying for one another, and realizing that you belong to something important here.
YOU are welcome here!
