Pastoral Care

Pastoral care is important to our Christian fellowship and comes in many forms – if you feel you or someone you know would benefit from a personal meeting or visit please contact the church office in the first instance.


Riverside is eager to ensure that there is pastoral care at such times for both its members and those who live in the parish area. This means that we can undertake to arrange the conduct of funerals for those within our parish area, or those who are on the membership role. For those who live beyond the boundary of the parish, we would ask that an initial approach is made to their local parish minister. Please note that we are not always able to meet requests for specific times on specific days, and would ask families to ask the Undertaker to consult with the minister before the final arrangements for a service is made. In the event of a family bereavement we are sure that you will find the local undertakers most helpful.
