Welcome to Southminster... A safe and challenging place to grow, explore, question and make a difference.

Fire & Rain Capital Campaign

Help protect our church from the elements: Our goal is to raise $51k for fire alarm and drainage system repairs, and the balance on our roof loan — and we’re more than 40% of the way there! Learn more about our campaign and how you can help us reach our goal.

Donate on Facebook

You can now make secure, tax-deductible donations to Southmin from our Facebook page — Just look for the ‘Donate’ button at the top of the page. Help us earn more by creating and sharing a fundraiser with your friends. There are no fees, so we’ll receive 100% of the contributions collected.

Family Promise Week

If you are looking for a way to get involved with the community, this is the perfect chance. During Family Promise week, Southminster hosts a family in need and provides a meal and a safe place to sleep. We need volunteers to cook/serve dinner and stay overnight.
