STAND - Riverway Youth Day

"We have nothing to fear for the future, except as we shall forget the way the Lord has led us, and His teaching in our past history." -Ellen G White, Life Sketches, p. 196.

Sometimes it can feel like our faith was formed in a vacuum. It's easy to forget that the God we read about through the stories in the Bible, is the same God that has been present throughout our history, guiding His church to this day. Come and join us for Riverway's youth day as we discover how God has worked through individuals and groups just like ourselves; Heroes of faith such as the Waldensians, Tyndale, Luther, Calvin and more.

On 30th September Riverway's youth will present our reformation history in an exciting way that will engage and challenge you. We'll be Joined by S.E.C. Teens Director, Pastor Juan Carlos Patrick, who'll present a message in the morning, and after lunch (which will be provided) we'll have an interractive programme. Join us and invite your friends

Something to Sing About - Riverway Music Day & Fundraising Concert

We would like to invite you to Riverway Church’s music day. 

Theme
Our theme is ‘Something to Sing About’. Join us as we seek to understand the topic of music; how does music fit into our lives and our worship? Is it just for our entertainment, or has God given us the gift of music for something much deeper? 

The programme
This Full Day programme will be inspiring and interactive. Our speakers for the morning will be Tochi Anukurem and Akil Henry - Founders of One Sound Music, they will be joined by some special guests.

In the afternoon programme, everyone will have the chance to get involved as we will have some singer/songwriters leading out an interactive songwriting workshop.

Evening Concert
The day will conclude with a fund-raising concert featuring many gifted singers and musicians.

The organisation that we are aiming to raise money for is Mount Olives Health Services. A medical ministry based in South India, which supports the local Christian community, as well as providing outreach and medical help for the wider population. We are hoping to raise funds for a project to build a community centre. Which will serve as a place of worship, a base for evangelism and a medical clinic. For more information about their work, please visit:

http://mount-olives-health-services.org/

Food & Transport
If you are travelling by car, there is a large car park at the church. Or if you are coming by public transport, the closest rail station is Bexley, (about a 25 minute direct train from London Bridge Station) and the 492 bus from the station stops just outside the church.

'Victorious Life' - Youth week of prayer, with Dean Cullinane

"I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."
- John 10: 10

 

Study. Work. Shop. Play. Sleep. Repeat. 

Study. Work. Shop. Play. Sleep. Repeat. 

 

…Does it sometimes feel as if your life is on autopilot?  As if you're trapped in a continuous routine? Do you ever get the sense that all you are doing is filling time - just another cog in the machine? 

You’re not alone. Many of us  are watching the world around us become increasingly purposeless, dangerous and unforgiving, and are asking the question; 

“is this all there is?”…

There is an answer.

Join us from the 23rd May, at Riverway Church Youth Week of Prayer. Guest speaker Dean Cullinane will lead us on an explanation of what it means to do more than simply exist - to really live; A meaningful life. An abundant life. A victorious life!

Riverway Youth Day - CHOOSE

“Choose you this day whom ye will serve...” - Joshua 24:!5

 

As the children of Israel were about to enter into the promised land, Joshua set before them a choice. They could choose to serve the gods of the Egyptians and the gods of the Amorites, or they could choose to serve the Living God. Today, we are faced with the same choice. Who will we serve? Will we serve the gods of our own devising made with our own hands, or the one and true God? We cannot serve both.

 

On 13th October 2012, Riverway hosted a youth day on the theme of ‘CHOOSE’, the speaker in the morning was Ashley Bloom, and there was a full day’s program including a fellowship lunch with an afternoon program featuring a song service, quiz and a short message from Pastor Jerry Smith
