Welcome to Tim, Clare, Caleb and Noah Chilvers

Tim, Clare, Caleb and Noah ChilversI am joining the Riverside staff team and leadership team to share in the oversight, leadership and pastoral responsibilities with Andy and Judy—to help shape the vision and strategy of the church. In some respects, my role is slightly fluid. But, as part of this, I will be involved in the pastoral team, some of the 18-30’s ministry and community groups.

For the last 10 years, I have been a leader in two churches near London – in Surbiton for the last 6 years, and in Bromley whilst at Bible College. I’ve also worked at Tearfund (where Clare and I met!) and for a financial services company. Clare and I have been married 8 years, and have 2 year-old twin boys – Caleb & Noah.

About 8 years ago, I was randomly on Riverside’s website. Neither of us had ever heard of the church before, but I said to Clare, “This is the kind of church I’d love to work for.” And now here we are!

God has done amazing things in and through Riverside over the years. I’m excited that God has brought us here to continue helping to lead the church forwards into the things he is calling us to.

We’re in unprecedented times, with wonderful opportunities that churches have never had before. As I join the team, I look forward to learning – I’m already discovering just how great and gifted they are! – and partnering together in building God’s kingdom.

If you ever want to get in touch, please do – either by email of phone. Earlier in the week is usually better!
