Q: Who are you?

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.
Although each church member has a special role to play within the local church, we also have a small ministry team that is supported by a larger leadership team. These teams facilitate and support the life of the local church.
Sleaford is a market town in central Lincolnshire, near the east coast of England and Riverside Church is on the main shopping street in the centre of the town, called Southgate. We are next to the river on the west side of Southgate. Our postcode is NG34 7RY. We have railway and bus links to nearby towns.
We don't know what, if any, background you have with churches. We might just be a little different from what you've known in the past. We are an evangelical Christian Church, with a lively worship style. Our members have come from a variety of church backgrounds and from none - all are welcome, whether you you are a Christian now, or you just want to come and visit us to find out a little more about God.
