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 GatheringRiverside holds two worship services each Sunday.

When: Sundays at 9:30am and 4:30pm
Where:  Riverside Church, upstairs hall

Morning Service

The Morning Service at Riverside starts at 9:30am, and is a modern service for all ages. It includes musical praise, prayer, Bible readings, and talks that explain the Bible in its context matched with an application for life today.

Early Evening Service

The Early Evening Service is designed for people who want a different style of church – a missional, relational, participatory, deconstructed style of church, where we encourage each other to live the Kingdom life. A kids program is incorporated into this service.

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.
