You just can’t beat a good old fashioned fried breakfast and large cup of coffee. Add in a bit of banter with a few good blokes and you have the perfect start to a Saturday morning. Whether you enjoy bacon and eggs or something with a little higher fibre content, we are calling all men to simply come together once a month to spend a bit of quality time with each other. Whether you are a man of faith or none we believe that good blokes need the company of good blokes. We meet on the last Saturday of every month by the bush garden at the rear of the property. A small donation of $5 helps to cover the cost of the food.
Come and join us for relevant worship; dynamic prayer and teaching that challenges and transforms those who long to live for Jesus.
Our informal atmosphere will make you feel right at home and you'll be looked after by our greeting team and hosts.
If you can let us know that you plan to come along.
Splash is our expression of church designed for families with children. With high energy and creative worship, prayer and treaching we utilise arts and crafts, games, technology, and drama to teach everyone how wonderful Jesus is and how amazing it is to live for Him.
We start at 11:45am and aim to finish at 12:30pm with plenty of time after for drinks, snacks and free play.
It's a great environment to be in and fulfils one of Riverside's values which is to have fun.
We'd love you to come along, even better let us know if you plan to be with us and we'll look after you.
The Riverside Walk is our Discipleship Pathway. We are a church that wants to see people mature in their Christian walk and the Riverside Walk is a key element in that process. The course is made up of 10 modules that run on a monthly basis throughout the year. You can start at any point and complete all modules at your own pace. The course is structured around our belief that a Disciple of Jesus Christ knows
1) How to live in fellowship with other believers
2) How to grow spiritual disciplines
3) How to serve the body of believers
4) How to impact the world
Our heart is that everyone who calls Riverside home will have been on the Riverside Walk.
Please look at the upcoming events page to see what module is coming next.
The Riverside Life Groups are an integral part of life at Riverside as they foster intimacy, openess, growth and accountability on your Christian walk.
They flow directly from our 'Riverside Walk' discipleship pathway and also offer opportunities for people to serve and lead.
Our goal is to have everyone at Riverside in a Life Group so if you are interested please contact the office on 8523 4844 to get details of locations, times and hosts.

Every Friday from 7pm-9pm during term time we run theme nights and once a month we have a get out of town event or activity.

Our dedicated and trained team make sure everyone belongs and is valued and we also run a bus pick up and drop off for those who have no other way of getting to SHOUT.
SHOUT is run by members of Riverside Church so you can expect all content, values and interactions to have a strong Christian ethos, but saying that, one of our Church values is FUN so you can be assured of a great laugh and a great place to make good solid friends. Come on give us a try, you'd be crazy not to!!
Bubbles is our Parent and Toddler Group and runs from 9:30am until 2pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during term time.

After that we bring out the toys and open out the whole building to make one great big free play area.
We share fruit at 10:30am and the Cafe is open from 9am for coffee and from 11am for our special Bubbles menu.
The whole day is given over to the toddler group so you are free to stay until 2pm and enjoy the courtyard, sandpits and soft play area.
The cost is $2 for the first child and $1 each for any extra children.
Please let us know if you plan to come along.
As the ladies of the Church we know that every woman needs an oasis, a place of rest, relaxation and refreshing away from all our responsibilities.
Actually we believe that all you need to create an oasis is a good cup of coffee, unhurried time and a group of supportive friends.
So with that thought in mind, in the midst of our busy lives we create a women’s only oasis at Riverside Cafe.
This moment in time will be whatever you need it to be, so just come along and see where the conversations and the friendships lead!
Join us every Thursday for a time of inspiration, community, faith and fun.
All ladies welcome! 10am - 12pm.
If you love art and crafts and you also enjoy making friends then this group is for you. On Thursdays from noon until 2pm you get to create as you relate. Bring along your own creative endeavors to work on and spend the time chatting and befriending those around you. That is why we call it Creationships.
