We are a small and active Church of Scotland in north Perth. Our parish includes the North Inch, Muirton and North Muirton. We also have responsibility for the new neighbourhood of Bertha Park on the north edge of Perth.
Riverside Church includes people from our local neighbourhood and from across Perth united by our shared faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe that every church has the same main vision and mission from God; to share the love and story of Jesus and to help people become his disciples. But each local community decides how to do that in their own time and place.
Our local mission is to:
Grow as a community of Jesus’ disciples
Serve each other, our neighbours, our parish, our city and beyond, using our abilities and our building.
Pray as a way of life
Our community values are faith, nurture and generosity these shape how we approach our mission.
Our vision is expressed in many different ways. But we are currently working on two large projects to help us serve our community and grow as disciples.
The first is Martha’s Kitchen, which aims to refocus our community work around a new cafe at the centre of our building (Martha’s Kitchen).
The second major project is outreach and the establishment of a Christian community, in Bertha Park (Bertha Park).
