Who We Are
Southern River Church of Christ is a community of Christians committed to loving God and loving people. Holding our first service on 28 October 2012, the church was planted as an independent ministry by the Thornlie Church of Christ.
Thornlie Church of Christ has had a long history of serving and ministering to the community in and around Southern River, most notably through Thornlie Christian College.
Planting a new church in the heart of this growing area had been a goal of Thornlie Church of Christ for several years, and finally, in 2012 that vision became a reality.
On the 4 December, 2016, Southern River Church of Christ celebrated its “coming of age” as a fully autonomous affiliate in Churches of Christ WA – no longer a daughter church of Thornlie, but a sister church.
Why We’re Here
The purpose of the church is a simple one. We’re not aiming to be the biggest, the loudest, or the fanciest; instead our goal is to reflect the basic, central teachings of the bible – “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ ” (Matthew 22:37 – 39 NIV) The values that underpin our approach to God, relationships and ministry reflect this.
Where We Are
Southern River Church of Christ meets at 10:00 a.m. each Sunday in the multipurpose hall at Thornlie Christian College (see map below). Find and contact us here.
