We love having guests! No matter where you are from, you’re welcome. We want you to enjoy your visit, meet some new friends and connect with God. Here’s everything you need to know!
When & Where
Our Church meets every Sunday at 10 am at 11 Mortimer Road Berri.
There is a carpark at the front of the building. If it is full, please park on the street nearby.
There are several entrances at the front of the building. Look for our hosts at the entrance door.
We love having children in church services!
Don’t worry if your littlies make some noise or move about – we can cope!
We run a Kids Church Program during school terms for kids aged 4-12years. Look for the registration table where you can complete a registration form and sign them in. One of our hosts will help you with this and show you where the Kids Room is. Your kids will stay with you in the main service until about 10.30 am then they’ll go to the next room for games, snacks, discussion, Bible teaching and other fun! Unfortunately due to the current COVID-19 restrictions and our current space, we are unable to provide a Kids Church program. Of course, children are still welcome in the main meeting. You may want to consider bringing something to keep them occupied in this time if necessary.
All of our Kids Church team members are specially selected, trained and police checked. We use the Child Safe System for training and equipping our volunteers to keep your children safe. For more information on Child Safe, please CLICK HERE
Where to sit?
There is no allocated seating in our church. Just sit wherever you feel comfortable.
What happens in the Church service?
Services at Riverland Central are casual, fun, contemporary and suited to all ages.
There is usually 20-25min of modern music. Some of the music is upbeat and some is slow where we engage and worship God. People may clap, dance or raise their hands. You are welcome to participate as much or as little as you choose.
Several times a month we take communion together. This is a time to reflect on what Jesus has done for us. Communion bread and juice is passed around and if you love Jesus, then feel free to take communion. Otherwise, just let it go past you.
We will also receive an offering. Someone will usually talk about giving and being generous, and collection bags are passed around. This time of giving is for people who belong to the church. You are welcome to give if you want to, but there is certainly no expectation for you to give at all, and nobody is aware what the next person gives. Just pass the bag to the next person.
Someone will speak for approximately 30 minutes and sometimes there will be an opportunity to respond to the message or have someone pray with you if you’d like that.
The service usually finishes about 11.30.
Please feel very welcome to stay around after the service ends for a coffee or tea. There is usually cake or biscuits and cheese too. This is all provided by people in the church and there is no charge.
What to Wear
There is no dress code in our church. Some people dress up, some don’t. Either way is fine, and most people dress neat casual.
The building is airconditioned and heated.
Follow the signs to find the toilets or ask one of our friendly hosts to direct you.
There is a baby change table available.
