Söderhöjdskyrkan was planted in 1985 in the Brandbergen area about 20 km South of central Stockholm. About ten years later, the church was able to purchase a 100-year old building in the trendy Södermalm area of Stockholm. Söderhöjdskyrkan seeks to be salt and light in the community through hosting a café for marginalized people Monday to Fridays. Those in need can come in for breakfast, coffee and both physical and human warmth. Teams from the church also go out every other Friday evening to a nearby square to grill pancakes and talk to passers-by about Jesus. In addition to the main Swedish-speaking congregation, Söderhöjdskyrkan is also home to a Portuguese-speaking congregation with their own Brazilian pastor.
Söderhöjd is a dynamic church in the heart of Stockholm, Sweden. In addition to hosting typical church functions their building also acts as a hub for the community to gather throughout the week. Every day they serve breakfast to over 100 people, many of whom are either homeless or in need. In order to best continue serving their congregation and community the church building is in need of some repairs and updating. The scope of the project is broad and will require many different skill sets. From new flooring in the church hall to minor bathroom renovations to fresh paint – all repairs and updates are done with the hope of making their building an inviting place for community and church members alike to gather.
