About Us

Riverside Community Trust was set up by Riverside Church on the 1st April 2016 and is organised and managed in partnership with its members and relevant organisations and agencies. Key partners are Bethany Christian Trust, South Ayrshire Alcohol & Drug Partnership and South Ayrshire Council Housing department.

A long-held objective of the church has been “to enjoy and glorify God in serving our local community”. More specifically we do this “by seeking to promote justice at all levels of society and by finding ways of expressing love and care for our neighbours and fellow-citizens”.

(From L to R, Lizzie, Bruce & Lorna)

We currently have one full time staff member: Lizzie Adrain (Community Development Worker) and 2 part time staff: Bruce Bunten (RCT Coordinator) & Lorna Bryden. We also have around 50 active volunteers who are involved in a variety of our services both in our Tuesday & Wednesday drop-ins, furniture uplifts & deliveries and throughout the week. We have a fantastic team, and are especially thankful to our volunteers, as without them, we would not be able to give the level of support we do.
