Riverside Church is a busy church with something going on every day. We meet for worship on Sundays at 10:45am in our church building on Southgate, the main shopping street of Sleaford, a market town in Lincolnshire. You are very welcome to drop in for worship, where we trust you will be made welcome.
As a Christian fellowship our aim is to show God’s love in action by the activities carried out in our building, and through our interaction with our neighbours, both as a church and as individuals.
Riverside Church is committed to working with the churches in the town wherever possible. We are a part of Churches Together in Sleaford and District (CTSD). Volunteers from the other churches often join us in several of our mission projects.
We run a community cafe at the front of our build. This venture is known as 'The Source' and in addition to the cafe we have several well-equipped meeting rooms available to let (subject to our lettings policy). Further details can be found here.
Riverside Church, Sleaford, is a church committed to including age-appropriate activities for children and young people. More than this, we have as one of our core values something taken from the United Reformed Church's document, "Towards a charter for children in the Church." One of the points in that charter says, "We will only do things in separate age groups what we cannot in conscience do together."
This means that we expect our children to play a full part in the life of the church. They can minister powerfully to adults, just as adults can minister to them. We expect God to speak to them and God to speak to the whole church through them. We have a range of age-appropriate groups and activities to help their learning and spiritual growth, but it is our intention not to exclude children from any part of our church's life unless there are excellent and compelling reasons for so doing.
Riverside Church holds the Child Friendly Church Award - we work hard to ensure children have a full part and safe place in our church.

Riverside have been operating The Source, a Multi Use Centre since September 2007 following the completion of an extension to our buildings. A Multi Use Centre is a building that has been adapted for flexible use where members of the public can access information and services and find a space for their meetings. It is part of our mission as a town-centre church to make our buildings available for community use.
At the heart of The Source is our community cafe, currently open several days a week. We offer drinks, light meals and snacks at low cost,
The Source is managed by a full-time employed Centre Co-ordinator who is the first point of contact for all matters regarding letting of meeting rooms, the cafe, and other services provided by The Source.
“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.”
