Welcome to Riverside Church in Southwell

Riverside began in a small village chapel and has since grown to become an inter-generational, multi-cultural church family. We meet in Southwell, Nottinghamshire, and have a presence in many other local communities through our Connect Groups and activities.

Our mission is to connect people to God, each other and our world. This is at the heart of everything we do.

We are members of the Ground Level Network – a movement of churches partnering across the UK and beyond. We are also members of the Evangelical Alliance who unite thousands of churches across the UK.
