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.

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor, or are homeless; to those who may have come to this country recently and only speak a little English*; to those who are crying, to new-borns, to those of you who are skinny as a rake and to those who could afford to lose a few pounds.

We welcome you if you can sing like Pavarotti or who can’t carry a note in a bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re ‘just browsing’, just woken up or just got out of prison. We don’t care if you are more Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury or haven’t been in church since little Jack’s christening.

We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome keep-fit mums, football dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like ‘organised religion’, we’ve been there too!

If you blew all your money on the horses, you’re welcome here. We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell or come simply because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.

We welcome those of you who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or if you simply got lost in Sleaford’s one way system and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts and you!

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 building.  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.
