Welcome! Riverside Church is a Christian community in North Perth, Scotland.

We are always glad to meet new people and try to be involved in our neighbourhood, sharing Jesus’ love and his story.

Relaxing of lockdown rules now allows limited access to church buildings. We are deeply aware that many are missing worshiping together. Lots of groups and small businesses also use Riverside facilities and would value access.

However, we are not, at present, allowed to open for hall lets, or to open our church office. Once we can reopen the building we will first have to meet very restrictive Covid-19 related standards of hygiene, access and social distancing.

So currently, Riverside’s building remains closed. We will regularly review the situation and provide an update soon.


The Covid-19 pandemic has put a great strain on the church’s finances. We have lost several month’s income from hall lets and plate giving during services but our expenses have not fallen significantly. We are now running at a heavy loss. If you would like to make a donation to the church please contact our treasurer, James Christie, on 07525 056643, or perthriverside@gmail.com

As a church we remain active online through regular reflections, small group meetings and the use of online resources, some of this is available in the following links:
