Riverside currently runs several small groups that meet for this purpose either in members homes or in the church buildings. Most groups meet weekly.
We know the value of Christians gathering in small groups for fellowship, prayer, worship and Bible study. Several who used to be part of our church and have gone on to full-time ministry in the Church testify that meeting in a small group was foundational to their spiritual growth and in recognising their call. Because of this, one of the key values that we hold as a church is to encourage all members to become part of a home group where people will be committed to one another in prayer, support and time, and which will be open to include and serve those currently outside the Church.
