Joint Service on Sunday 2 October


This Sunday we are joining with the other five churches in the Central Telford Parish for another joint service.  10.30am start at Holy Trinity Dawley.

River church will be back at normal time of 3.30pm on the following week, 9 October, where we shall also be looking forward to welcoming Harper Adams First Year students.  They will be visiting River as part of a tour of local churches to try to help them find a church.

Summer Celebration!


Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!

Sunday 7 August, River Community Church and Christ the King Church are running a joint trip to Barmouth, and anyone is welcome along too.  We hope to go on a coach, leaving from Lawley Primary School car park at 9am prompt, and returning around 7.30pm to Lawley again.  Tickets are £10 per adult and £5 per child, and need to be bought before Sunday 17 July.  Everyone is free to explore Barmouth, enjoy the beach and the sea, the funfair and shops, and a game of rounders on the beach is planned in the afternoon for anyone interested.


Weekend Away!!

Cloverley LargeFancy a weekend in a beautiful, well equipped, extremely comfortable and large country house with River church, 10-12 February 2017?  Book your place to Cloverley Hall now, which is only around 30mins drive away.  We can’t wait to enjoy time together as a whole family, away from the usual pressures of life, able to laugh, learn and worship together, not rushing to the next job.  There will be lots of free time to relax and play, swim and walk in the 11 acres of grounds.

This is the first weekend River has attempted, and we are looking forward to all bookings to be in before the end of July, so we can plan a programme to suit everyone coming.  Everyone is welcome to come along, including all ages.  Come on, come away with us and book now through Faith Robinson.   See H for more details or pick up the booking form from River church on a Sunday afternoon.

Get Ready…Quiz!


The St Johns vs River quiz was great!  Thanks to Home for hosting us, and to everyone that came and participated in such a fun night out.

Both churches had won one quiz each before we began and it was a very close fight by the end of the night, but congratulations must go to this year’s winner…..St Johns!  This will now be engraved on the trophy for 2016.

Hunt the Rugby Ball!


With the RBS Rugby 6 Nations well underway, the recent ‘Hunt the Rugby Ball’ River Flows Out was lots of fun!  Thanks to all who played, and all local businesses who were happy to also participate with rugby balls in their windows/doorways.  Looking forward to more River Flows Out days!

Come and visit us…


We would love to see you, and invite you to come get to know the River Church Community.  We meet at Lawley Primary School, in the main hall, on Sundays from 3.30pm.  Click here for more details.

The service is usually finished by 5pm, but you are welcome to stay and chat, have refreshments, and get to know people- we are there until nearly 6pm most weeks.

On the last Sunday of the month, we are active in our community through ‘River Flows Out’ starting at 2pm.  See River Flows Out page for more details, or get in touch as the activities change each month.

Come and say hi!  It might be very different to what you are expecting🙂

Current series!


We are well into our series called Jesus Shaped People, which we visit on Sundays and in the Monday evening Life Group.  This allows us time and good resources to think about what it means to follow Jesus in modern day life.  Come along and find out more!
