A Baptist Church in Ermington

Riverside’s weekly activities are an expression of our vision, as we seek to honour God, do life with one another, and be a blessing to our local community.  Please get in touch if you would like further information about any of these activities.

Sunday GatheringOur Sunday Gathering is a time when we get together to spend time with God and each other. We pray and learn from the Bible together, as well as worship God through singing or different activities. There is always a delicious morning tea, along with tea and coffee, and time to chat with old and new friends. Creche and Kids’ Church are provided for kids, though they are also very welcome to stay with Mum and Dad in the main gathering.

When: Sundays, 10am – 11.30am
Where:  Riverside Church, upstairs hall
Note: On the first Sunday of each month, our regular service is replaced by a community meal starting at 11am.

Bible StudiesWe are a church of small groups; not just a church with small groups. Our heart is to be learning and growing together in genuine community within these groups, and to celebrate with and supporting one another. All groups focus on building community together through good food, building each other up through the Word and reaching out, in love, to our community.
