Situated alongside the A2990, with excellent access by road and public transport, Riverside is ideally positioned for your next event in the Kent area.

Our clean, contemporary space is perfect for anything from a small meeting, through to an event or conference, with seating for over 200.

We have a number of different sized well-equipped rooms, ranging from smaller meeting rooms, through to a large auditorium with a full audio visual suite.

The site has ample parking for 60 cars, with much more available on the road outside. We are just 5 minutes walk from Chestfield & Swalecliffe railway station, which is situated on the London mainline. We also have the excellent Riverside Cafe on site, to cater for all your refreshment needs.

Here is a sample of what people say about us...

“I would like to commend Kim and her team at the Riverside Vineyard Church for providing such superb customer care and support to us at our recent staff event. As ever, the team demonstrated the highest degree of professionalism to ensure that our event ran smoothly and our delegates were comfortable and well supported. Despite a last minute increase in delegate numbers, the team ensured we had sufficient refreshments and seating. The IT support was superb and we were able to feel supported and confident about the venue’s ability to ensure our event was successful. I would not hesitate in recommending Riverside as a venue. For events small and large, they deliver a high quality service, at very reasonable rates in a comfortable, well-appointed and modern avenue.
