Let’s make Heaven a little more crowded

Our ministries are some of the most practical ways we can experience personal growth and demonstrate our love of Christ.

We are focused on seeing God’s Kingdom expand in our own locality and into the world. Our reason for being is that we might declare the reign of God to our community and encourage those who do not yet know Jesus to know Him personally and experience His incredible grace.


Free English Speaking Classes


Partnering with Thornlie Church of Christ and Deo Gloria Church, Southern River CoC has pioneered a ministry to serve members of the wider community whose first language is one other than English. We offer several free English Speaking Classes during the week for conversation in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Note there are no classes on school holidays.
