For the Heart of the City
There are several ministries in South Church that enliven our faith community and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world. Below are some of the specifics.....
Celebrate Recovery @ 90 Main
CR @ 90 Main is a Christ Centered "12 Step" Recovery Program for anyone with a hurt, habit or hang-up that meets at South Church on Wednesday evenings. The evening consists of dinner, large group meeting, small group meetings and 90 Main Cafe. Click here for more information.
The GRACE Cooperative
The Grace Place Cooperative was founded in the fall of 2008 to support the on-going mission of the urban Northend Elementary School. Members provide tutoring and assistance for students in the classroom, as well as support the school's programs with fundraisers and enthusiasm. Each Christmas, South sponsors a “giving tree” to support classroom needs.
Friendship Center Outreach
Twice a month, South Church folk help prepare and serve a meal at the Friendship Center – New Britain’s homeless shelter.
The Christmas Dinner
For the past 30 years, on Christmas Day, the church hosts dinner for nearly 500 people. Folks come from all over town for a hot meal and much good cheer. South Church is mindful that on the day of his birth, Jesus had no safe, warm place to reside. We are pleased to offer a place of hospitality and warmth for all who wish, from all walks of life.
Each year, a South Church team provides repair work and improvements for a neighbor-in-need. Click here to see photos....

A neighborhood party! A gathering of kids and their families from the neighborhood to bake cookies and bring on the holiday spirit. All are welcome!
