June 2018



Welcome to InBrief!

This is our new newsletter to everyone at Riverside Vineyard Church. 

As you'll have heard us say, we're "a family with a purpose". Great families share life together, and this is just one of the ways we can be doing this.

InBrief will give you headlines of some things going on in the life of the church, with links if you want to read more. There's also a link to the InBrief newsletter from our homepage so you can access it at any time, plus regular updates going out through Twitter, Facebook & Instagram - please do like / follow, etc!!

One of the things we're intentionally pressing into in this season is "healing & freedom". We'd love you to be pressing into this for yourself, your friends & your community, praying for the advance of God's Kingdom & the release of restoration into our world.

The Great Riverside Bake Off Returns!

We need your help to make some cakes that we can sell on Celebration Sunday (1st July) in aid of the youth going to Soul Survivor festival.

We would love you to consider making and donating a cake to us, so that we can sell it to raise money for our youth group to go to Soul survivor this summer. This is the 3rd year we have run this Fundraiser and it has become very popular. Each year we ask some guest judges to vote on the best 3 cakes and the winner gets a prise.

As the church is celebrating its 30th Birthday we are asking you to make a '30th Birthday showstopper Cake'. This will need to brought to church on the 1st July to our 10.30am Celebration Sunday service. If you would like to take part please email gavin@riversidevineyard.com. If your not much of a baker but enjoy eating cake please bring some money to buy some cake on the 1st July. 

Its going to be a fantastic event, we are really looking forward to it.



If you've said yes to Jesus but not yet been baptised, our next baptism service is on Celebration Sunday, 1st July.

If for you this is the next step and would like to be baptised, get in touch via office@riversidevineyard.com
