Our services start at 10.15am, and usually end around 11.30 – 11.45 ish.
At Riverside Church we try to be as inviting and hospitable as we can, so you will be met with a friendly welcome at the door. Please feel free to ask any questions or let us know if there is anything we can do to help. The service is relatively informal and varies in format from time to time. Generally, we start with a period of worship that can be both lively and prayerful; worship usually starts with the singing of modern and traditional songs and hymns.
During the worship please feel free to join in, stand up or simply sit back and listen. Words for the songs can be easily seen on a large overhead screens.
After the first few worship songs, the children leave the main service and go to their various activity groups. These groups cater for children and young people in the age range from crèche to 17 years of age and the leaders are identified by red lanyards. Please see our ‘Kids & Youth’ page for more details.
We have a Ministry team who are available every Sunday after the service for anyone who would like prayer or a sympathetic ear. They are easily identified by the badges and blue lanyards they wear and can be found lurking at the front of the church immediately at the end of the service! The service they offer is completely confidential and their aim is to be a spiritual and practical source of help for anyone who is in need on a Sunday morning. For more information, please talk to Jacqui.
Refreshments are available in the back hall after the service and we invite everyone to stay and chat, leaving the church free for anyone requiring quiet prayer and ministry.
There is free parking along the main street and there are a few paid car parks located nearby.
During the week we hold various Prayer Meetings, Bible Studies, Alpha Courses, Home Groups and many other activities, which are open to all. These take place at a variety of frequencies, times, days and locations to suit the maximum number of people. Please see our ‘Outreach’ page for more details.
On alternate Friday evenings we run youth activities, for those aged 10 to 18 years. Please see our ‘Kids & Youth’ page for more details.
