Child Friendly Church AwardRiverside 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.
