Giving is a central part of Riverside Vineyard Church, Whitstable.

We're so thankful for the generosity of all those who give to Riverside, providing the church with the resources to do things well and fulfill our vision to be "good for everyone". Having the finances available means we can bless the community generously and fund many projects, events and courses, as well as the normal day-to-day running of the church.

Give on a Sunday

You can give via cash or cheque during the Sunday services. If you'd like to let us know who the gift is from, you can pick up a giving envelope from the information area before the service. The envelope has a section for your name and will also allow you to give your permission for us to claim Gift Aid where possible (find out more below).

Please make cheques payable to Riverside Church.

After worship, we have a short welcome, news and a break. During the break, we send out baskets into which you can put your gift.

Gift Aid

If you’re a UK taxpayer, please check if we can claim Gift Aid on your gift. Gift Aid allows us to claim an extra 25p from HMRC on top of every £1 donated to Riverside Church and significantly increases our income each year.

If you have any questions about Gift Aid or are unsure if we can claim Gift Aid on your gift, please get in touch via email to
