We are Church at Barking Riverside!

We exist to see communities thriving with Jesus at the heart of every person and every place. Our purpose is to create space for Jesus in our daily lives, with others and for others through:


How we create space for Jesus in our day to day.


Who we do it with.


Where and who we do it for.

When Do We Meet As Church?

Though we meet primarily in smaller groups as Hubs, we also meet as a Church Family every Sunday at the Rivergate Centre.

On the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month, we have our Sunday Celebrations; a family-friendly time of prayer, worship and the Word.

On the 2nd and 4th Sundays we meet for Prayer; this is a space for all ages with prayer stations that facilitate time to pray together and individually as needed.

On the odd occasion, when there is a 5th Sunday in a month we have our Social Sundays; a time to get together as a community to enjoy festivities, a film an activity.

We believe that Father, Son and Holy Spirit are working in creation to draw us into life and love and that all we need to do is create space for Him to work and life will flow.

We are Defined By Dependence On God, Passionate About People & Dreamers Who Dare To Make A Difference.
