Southgate Church’s first Sunday

Following a summer of renovations and volunteer training, Southgate Church launched a campus location on September 10th at 539 Main Street in Winchester.

The facility underwent an extensive overhaul and now has a new entrance, new washrooms and a new layout. It includes an updated space dedicated to Kidville, which is, the Sunday morning children’s program for babies to Grade 6. The 10th saw over 50 children in Kidville, while upstairs in the new auditorium 100 adults enjoyed the church service.

The campus is overseen by Pastor Aaron Hopkins and Pastor Matthew Gates, under the leadership of Rev. Ben Last of the Kemptville location. Many volunteers make Sunday mornings possible, helping with parking, greeting newcomers, serving coffee, and helping in Kidville. Gates & Hopkins host the morning, along with a live band each Sunday. The same teaching happens at both locations, with the Winchester Campus viewing a prerecorded version on screen.

Southgate believes every Sunday is someone’s first Sunday at church, and invites you to come see what they are all about on Sundays at 10am.
