Welcome to South Church!
Our traditional tall, white steepled church stands as a beacon in Andover, yet we attract visitors and members from across the Merrimack River Valley and beyond. We are a diverse congregation with a rich mix of young and old, gay and straight, single and partnered, believer-since-birth and spiritual-but-not-religious.
We are a 303-year old congregation with a long and rich history, and we are eagerly leaning into God’s future. We value our heritage and cherish our traditions, and we also focus on what it means to be the church today. We continue to evolve as we explore new and relevant ways of following Jesus’s model of sharing God’s extravagant love.
We are a very active congregation with many ways to be involved – from service projects to Bible studies, from environmental justice to music groups, from the all-church musical to the famous chili cook-off…there’s something for everyone!
If you’re wondering what to do next, come and worship with us on a Sunday. Sit in our pews and experience the diverse mix of people, the vibrant music, the inspiring preaching, and the wide array of activities. And if it feels like the right spiritual home for you, or if you have questions and want to learn more, don’t hesitate to be in touch.
God’s peace on your search for a church home, we’d love to see you here,
Greetings from Reverend Dana Allen Walsh
