We love having guests! No matter where you are from, you’re welcome. We want you to enjoy your visit, meet some great people and connect with God. Here’s everything you need to know!

When & Where

The church meets every Sunday at 10am at Riverland Central Christian Church in Glossop.

The building is a large Brick fronted shed on the Highway through Glossop (Northern side).

Carpark

There is a carpark on the Barmera side of the building, and we’ve reserved some spaces for guests right out the front of the carpark. Look for the green signs.

Come in through the main door facing the Highway. You’ll be welcomed by one of our friendly hosts.

Kids

We love having children in church services!

We have a play area for pre-schoolers at the back of the auditorium where you and your littlies may wish to sit during the service. There are toys and a low fence to keep them contained.

We also have family areas among the main seating with colouring tables and smaller chairs.

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 10.30am then they’ll go to another room for games, snacks, discussion, Bible teaching and other fun!

All of our Kids Church team members are specially selected, trained and police checked. We use the Child Safe System for training and equiping 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’re 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 engage as much or as little as you chose.

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.

Afterwards

Please feel very welcome to stay around after the service ends for a coffee or tea in the entry lounge. 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 but being an unlined shed the temperature can be hard to control – please dress for the weather!

Toilets

Yes, we meet in a shed, but we do have toilets!

There is a baby change table in the disabled access toilet.
