About

What is Riverstone Community Church all about?

Jesus

We exist to worship Him, to tell others about Him, to build a closer relationship with Him, and to serve Him by serving others. In short, we are disciples of Jesus who multiply disciples of Jesus.

Where are we?

15 Hamilton Street, Riverstone, 
Sydney, NSW, Australia.

What do we do?

Apart from our regular Sunday services, we run a variety of activities for a wide range of age groups. Whether you’re after something for kids, the whole family, or friendships for yourself, there’s plenty of opportunities to get involved. We also run a Sports Centre.

What kind of church are we?

We are a Christian Brethren Church. Read more about what that means in our Main Practices PDF.

Church starts at 10 am and runs for about 90 mins every Sunday

What do we do?

  • We Worship God (Father, Son and Spirit)
  • We honour Jesus Christ’s sacrifice for humanity.
  • We learn and share from the Bible
  • We encourage and support one another
  • We enjoy each other’s company

A church service usually includes prayer and praise, singing, sharing, communion, preaching and sometimes a Kids’ Spot.

You wont be pressured to sing out loud nor will you be called upon to answer questions during the service.

People might introduce themselves to you before or after the service as we hope to help you feel welcome.
