As a church community, Riverway has existed for many decades, however, before relocating to Sidcup, the church had been based in Bromley. In the late 1990s the church moved to it’s current location, and has continued to thrive in the area ever since.
Our membership is made up of people from a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures, including English, Mauritian, Caribbean, Filipino and South African to name a few. But we are united by love for God and one another, and a desire to see the gospel message make a practical difference to people's everyday lives.
What We Believe
“Seventh-day Adventists accept the Bible as their only creed and hold certain fundamental beliefs to be the teaching of the Holy Scriptures. These beliefs, constitute the church's understanding and expression of the teaching of Scripture.
The name Seventh-day Adventist includes vital beliefs for us as a Church. 'Adventist' reflects our passionate conviction in the nearness of the soon return ('advent') of Jesus. 'Seventh-day' refers to the Biblical Sabbath which from Creation has always been the seventh day of the week, or Saturday.
The mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is to proclaim to all peoples the everlasting gospel in the context of the Three Angels' messages of Revelation 14:6-12, leading them to accept Jesus as their personal Saviour and to unite with His church, and nurturing them in preparation for His soon return.”
