With over 40 years of history behind it, Southview Church remains focused on the message of the new life with God that is available through Jesus Christ. When Calgary’s south Fish Creek area was still mainly farmland, Southview, as a church plant from First Alliance Church, began ministering to the needs of its surrounding community. They first met at Prince of Wales School in Parkland before moving to their property on James McKevitt Road in 1982.
The new millennium found Southview looking in a new direction to allow for continued growth and opportunity to reach out in word and action with the love of Jesus. We moved from our original property (which is now home to Southgate Alliance Church) to our current location in Walden in 2016.
Though the landscape of south Calgary has changed over the years – what once was farmland is now home to over 400,000 people – our commitment to spiritual and social renewal through living out the good news of Jesus Christ is the same. And more than just relying on our efforts alone, we love partnering with others in that goal. We support local renewal and relief enterprises such as the Mustard Seed , Sonshine Centre, Calgary Pregancy Care Centre and Inn from the Cold. We also support other Christ-followers in regions around the world from China to Niger to Nicaragua.
Changed lives are what drive our leadership at Southview. Our mission is to lead as many people as possible to passionately follow Jesus. That isn’t just a slogan on our wall. We measure our success by that standard in everything that we do. If we ever stop hearing stories of life change, we guarantee that we will stop what we are doing and regroup, no matter how many people are attending.
