Children’s work at Riverside is coordinated by Anne Roche, with many years’ experience working with children and overseeing children’s work. Our desire is to provide a safe, well-equipped and caring environment in which to bring our children up in the knowledge of the word of God and of the living love of Christ in their lives.

On Sunday mornings Children’s Church meets during the 9.30am service at Queensbridge School, and also during the 10.30 service at Dame Elizabeth Cadbury School, with children leaving the main service after about 15 minutes to follow an exciting programme of activities in their groups. Our children’s groups are led by fully trained children’s workers who are DBS cleared in accordance with  our Safeguarding Policy.
