Riverside Church is a busy church with something going on most days. We meet for worship on Sundays at 10:45am in our church building and we run a community café at the front of our building. You are welcome to join us for worship, in the café and at other activities during the week.
As a Christian fellowship our aim is to show God’s love in action by the activities carried out in our building, and through our interaction with our neighbours, both as a church and as individuals.
Riverside Church exercises a number of ministries, both spiritual and social, on a regular basis, as well as some occasional or one-off activities. Some of our ministries are aimed at building up members of the fellowship for further service. Other activities are aimed at reaching members of the wider community - either in simple service borne of love or evangelistically, sharing with them the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Mission, vision & values
We are a broadly evangelical Christian church - which means we place the Word of God as a high authority for what we do and what we believe.
We are also a church committed to sharing the love of God in Christ Jesus to all whom we can. We do this through what we say and what we do. To put it another way, it is not enough just to tell others about Jesus - we want to show it too.
