At the top of the main community area we have Emmanuel Church. You will often find the church mentioned in the Events pages as its hall is well used by the community. However it exists firstly as a church.
Informal, welcoming, family-friendly, a church for all ages -

Those of you with primary aged children will know of the many things that go on at Southill School.

Southill Community Centre
There is a new and vibrant notice board outside the community hall letting residents know what is happening on a regular basis. This website will help to publicise these and the calendar of regular events can be found in the EVENTS page. We also hope to bring everyone's attention to one off events that go on in the centre. It is managed by a small group of residents and is selfsupporting as it receives no funding from outside on a regular basis, although it does apply for grants occasionally for capital improvements.
