Welcome – we are Church, at Barking Riverside

We are passionate to see our community thriving with Jesus at the heart of every person and every place.

Who we are?

We’re are a new Christian community in Barking Riverside as part of the Church of England. What we mean by that is shaped by our belief that Church is who we are, not a place we go.

Join In!

We exist to help every person discover the freedom that comes from living with Jesus at the heart of life. That’s what being a church is all about. And we can’t do it alone. Find out how to join in with hubs and prayer here.


We are committed to Safeguarding children and young people and vulnerable adults. We have adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practice on safeguarding which may be found on the Church of England’s website or on the Safeguarding pages of the Chelmsford Diocese

Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Zahra Awani, who may be contacted by email zahra@churchatbr.com
