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.
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.
We do not currently run a Junior Church on a Sunday morning, but children may, with a parent or guardian, meet in the cafe area of the church where activities are available for them.
The Source Café
Offering rest, refreshment and resources in the heart of Sleaford - Riverside Church have been operating The Source Multi Use Centre for many years following the completion of an extension to our buildings.
At Riverside, we know it is important to have fun! To this end, we have a number of social activities each week. The type and frequency vary depending on demand. These groups are always open to new people, both within the church fellowship and those who are not regular worshipers at Riverside - the more the merrier
