REACH SOUTH is a partnership of churches working together for the growth of God's Kingdom in the South of England

We were formed in 2019 by three independent churches sharing a common heritage and vision: Christ Church Southampton, Cornerstone Church Portsmouth and Redeemer Winchester. We are at the very start of our journey, but our aim is to steward the resources of shared outlook and common relationships for the greater glory of Christ.

 All our churches are members of the FIEC and our board currently consists of Orlando Saer, Jon Shulver and Jonny Clifton.

Better together

We believe in standing on the shoulders of others to maximise the effectiveness of our  work. There are three key areas where we co-ordinate our ministries.

  • We work together to deliver training for God's people in specific ministry areas and general theological enrichment. We also co-ordinate a full-time Ministry Training Programme based in Winchester, Southampton and Portsmouth.

  • We share expertise and good practice across our churches, as well as resourcing activities and events. We delight to multiply the effectiveness of gifted individuals so that other ministries can benefit.

  • We reach out to our region with the good news of Jesus through co-ordinated outreach activities. We plant churches where appropriate as a way of bringing more and more people from darkness to light for the glory of Jesus.
