The River Community Church is involved in both local and overseas ministry in both practical and spiritual ways. Our objective is to be a spiritually aware and spiritually led people who are the hands and feet of Jesus in the community.


Jesus set the example as He came with the Good News of the Kingdom of God and along the way provided practically for people in need.

Our practical areas of ministry are to the poor and needy in the community. Our initiatives include the River Food Share, the River Op Shop and the Love Your Neighbour Appeal.

Our 20 plus volunteers form part of a network that provides food for over 250 families each month, as well as operating an Op Shop.


Spiritual areas of ministry are found in the teaching of the Word of God not just on Sundays but during the week as various opportunities for people to connect spiritually are available.

Globally we support missionaries in Papua, Indonesia, Philippines and Zimbabwe.

Below is an overview of ministries of the River Community Church. To explore more about our areas of ministry use the Ministries Navigation Cascading Menu.

Men's Group

Each Wednesday fortnight a BBQ is held at the church with a time for sharing and praying for the men. Led by Phil Lavis this is a great opportunity for men's fellowship.

Prayer Meetings

Prayer is a great discipline of the Christian faith and here at the River Community Church there are opportunities for prayer both corporate and in solitude. We currently have corporate prayer every fortnight of a Wednesday evening from 6:00-7:00pm or pre service on Sunday at 9:30 - 10:00am.
