Southern Cross Centre

May 2023 Update

Dear SCC Family,

As we enter the month of May, we are thankful for God’s faithful guidance over the past 36 years as we celebrate our Church’s Anniversary on 21st May. In May 1997, Churchlands Christian Fellowship (the original congregation that later became Southern Cross Centre) was established at the Churchlands College of Advanced Education. In 1991, the church moved to a new location at 154 Balcatta Road in Balcatta. In March 2019, following the sale of our Balcatta building, Southern Cross Centre relocated to our current property at 13 Wallington Road, Balga.

The future looks bright as we continue to follow the course God has set to pursue our three goals of building Christian community, equipping the saints for the work of ministry, and sending our members into the community to advance God’s Kingdom. Work continues on our extensive facilities renovation project. We will update you early in May. In the meantime, thank you for your prayers as we prepare for a season of increasing growth and effectiveness in our threefold mission.

Dear Family,

I would like to encourage us all to remember that our Heavenly Father has us always in His mind, so we are free to constantly give thanks in everything as this is the will of God concerning us.

1 Thess 5:18
