Youth Worker

Malcolm Winch became a Christian through coming to Riverside and soon felt called to ministry. He recently graduated from the former International Christian College which also involved working in Perth’s Tulloch area. He was part of the sidewalk project in the Muirton area and Perth City centre. He’s been working at Riverside for nearly a year and is developing some exciting new ministries.  He’s never happier than when floating along in his kayak.

Malcolm leads our project supporting young people in education through one to one mentoring, group mentoring and work experience.

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.
