Community Development Worker

Jane has responsibility
for developing our facilities into a community hub, providing a cafe and a varied programme of community activities and initiatives. Jane’s background includes community education and working in the charitable sector. She is also a writer and teaches creative writing, so hopefully in time she will provide a better biography than the present author.

Church Administrator

Lynn Kendal has been a member of Riverside for years but more recently accepted the job of bringing some order to the office.  This thankless task means that she is seldom seen without an energy drink nearby.  When not in the office Lynn is often found pondering the meaning of life, expressing her considerable creative talents, or practising with her imaginary lightsaber as above.

Lynn is the person to speak to about our facilities and the day to day running of the church.
