About Southside Presbyterian Church

Southside Presbyterian Church has always been a church focused on about Jesus.

Our goal has always been to speak about Jesus’ life, death and resurrection to the people living on the Southside of Brisbane. We thought the best way to do this was to meet in the heart of the Southside each week and so we began to do this for the first time on a Sunday in 1984.

We first met in the Science Block at Macgregor State High School.

As time went on, we began to slowly achieve the goals we set out with. By God’s grace, people began seeing Jesus and experiencing the hope we have in his life, death and resurrection. We grew, and so after 5 years in Macgregor State High School were able to move further into the heart of Brisban’s Southside.

In 1989 we purchased land in Eight Mile Plains, but only began meeting there in 1991. We were known as Macgregor Presbyterian Church, and it was here that we would meet together to further our goals in encouraging each other and reaching the Southside of Brisbane.

We were again able to experience growth, and soon enough two services began at Macgregor, an 8:30 service and a 10:30 service.

After much discussion in the late 2000’s, we decided a few changes were necessary to continue to reach the Southside of Brisbane. We began to meet in a different building (the Life Development Centre on the corner of London Street and Logan Road in Eight Mile Plains) and changed our name to Southside Presbyterian Church. We changed our name because our goal was not simply to tell Macgregor or Eight Mile Plains about Jesus, but all of the Southside of Brisbane.

Southside also believed that to help continue this mission we would need to move from the little house at Padstow Road into bigger facilities. In March 2015, Southside purchased a property in the Brisbane Technology Park. The new location is 30 McKechnie Drive, Eight Mile Plains. We currently meet here during the week for different ministries, and are hoping to meet here on a Sunday by mid 2016.

Even though we experienced a lot of change since meeting in Macgregor State High School in 1984, our goal has always remained the same: We want to tell people about Jesus

This is Southside’s story, and we’re hoping and praying God continues to add to this story – whatever the future holds.

If you’d like to join us, please feel free to come and check us out. We continue to meet together each week – on a Sunday at the Life Development Centre, and throughout the week in our new building and in people’s homes.

Under 12s:
At Southside we believe kids are an amazing gift and incredibly important. And so we run Kid’s Church where we long to see kid’s lives transformed through Jesus Christ to the glory of God.

To begin with, for children up to 3 years old, Crèche is provided. It’s here that they are encouraged to know and trust in Jesus through play.

The next step is for children in Kindergarten to grade 7. They are connected into Kid’s Church where they are encouraged to believe and trust in Jesus and live for him. The children are taught from the Bible through stories, craft, songs, drama, games and small group discussion.   Edit
Under 18s:
Southside Youth is all about Jesus.

We are convinced that because Jesus died and rose again, there is nothing more important.

We meet every Sunday during the school term.   Edit
