Visit Gathering Community Church and
worship with us

church-sanctuary1Our Lord has given us a gathering of Christians coming together in simple faith and belief.

Gathering Community Church of Surfside Beach, South Carolina, is a body in Christ who assembles for worship called “the Gathering,” every Sunday  enjoying the grace, love and wholeness Christ offers.

Our Mission is to “Encourage Biblical and Simplistic Living in Christ.”

Our purpose is for each one to be encouraged and empowered in Christ’s Love, motivated to share His love to the Community of the Greater Grand Strand area.  The body in Christ is lead by Pastor, Rev. Benjy Simmons.

Our worship consists of a blended style of music, joys and concerns, prayer, Holy Communion and relevant, biblical preaching for today’s culture.


Our Gathering Ladies had so much fun, fellowship and delicious food. This group is dedicated to helping others.

Spring Cleaning


Simply Pray this prayer…
 “Lord, I admit I cannot handle my life any longer, I believe you are the answer to my chaos.   I know I have missed the mark you have set in Christ. Save me, fill me and use me.   Thank you lord for my new life today. In Jesus Name, Amen.”

If you have prayed this prayer and believe you have a new life in Christ, first, tell someone about your decision, find a bible based church and serve others with the new love Christ has planted within your heart. If you would like for us to pray for you whether it be a new decision in Christ or if you are a believer and need prayer for your life’s situation, please allow us to help you by emailing your request to
