St Edmund's Church, Riddlesdown

St Edmund's Church, Riddlesdown logo

You are warmly welcome at St Edmund's Church.

St Edmund’s has been serving the community in Riddlesdown since 1955. It is a dual purpose building, used both as a church and community resource. Its congregation members are friendly and welcoming to all and are mainly resident in the local community. With Sunday services at 8 am and 10 am worship varies in style week by week.

St Edmund’s has a long tradition of community service. The St Edmund’s Caring Group provides key support to a large number of clients, mainly elderly, throughout the district. The St Edmund’s Lunch Club meets on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month to provide a good lunch and companionship for a number of people who would otherwise be rather isolated.

A prayer group meets every fourth Monday at the home of a Church member.

Rev'd Susan Atkinson-Jones is the Team Vicar of St Edmund's. Susan can be contacted by phone on 020 8675 5505 or by email at
