Welcome to South Church  


Welcome to South Congregational Church!  It is fitting that you should visit our website during the season of Easter.  South Church is a vibrant downtown congregation, constantly seeking new ways to welcome God’s Easter love into our lives and to share it in our community. Our motto is “Radical Hope and Extravagant Love”  Come worship with us, and come in the fullness of who you are.  We’re a joyous blend of creativity and tradition.  We’re informal and fun.  Some of us wear jeans and Birkenstocks to church, and some of us wear jackets and ties.  Some are new to Christianity, others have been immersed in it since childhood.  You’ll quickly find that we are, perhaps like you, strong in certain ways and vulnerable and imperfect in others, but always relying gratefully on the grace of God to heal us, strengthen us, and lead us into fullness of life.
