Do continue to also follow NHS health guidelines, and watch our video below from some spiritual encouragement.
"God is our refuge and strength, our very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear ..." Psalm 46:1
No Sunday Services at Queensbridge School or Dame Elizabeth Cadbury School until further notice.
If you would like to contribute to the regular offering you can donate online .
If you are new and want to connect with us please email email@example.com or let us know in the online chat alongside the live stream on Sundays.
For the five Sundays in August, we are hosting a Coffee & Catch up over Zoom directly after our Sunday services. So grab a drink and join in to chat to other familiar Riversiders and build community in breakout rooms. We may not be able to all meet physically, but our connection can still remain strong. Do your best to make it, even if it’s just one of the Sundays out of five! See you then!
Although we may need to be physically apart during these times, we want to encourage as much support and mutual encouragement together. As such, we are encouraging our Life groups and Community groups to be really creative in how they support each other, and reach out in love to each other and those in our neighbourhoods.
You can connect via ZOOM video/audio calls
