The church participates in Riverside’s annual Dickens Festival generally held in February and often on the streets outside the church. Our contribution to the Royal Victorian Music Hall and Queen’s Tea. Volunteers work all year to plan and participate in one of our church’s bigger fundraisers.


There are many opportunities to get involved. Before the event we need people to distribute flyers, make donations of food, set up the space, and prepare food. During the event we need ticket takers, tour guides, kitchen help, and servers (we’re hoping to get many of the youth to be costumed servers). After the event we need a fresh crew of people to come and clean up. There will be a sign up sheet for volunteers, as well as for food donations, in the coffee hour room every Sunday. If you would like to look at the specific list of jobs and times or need more info, please contact the Dickens Tea Committee.
