What will you be doing on Sunday?

It might have been a while since you last visited a church…why not give us a try?  It might be quite different to what you might think of.  We would love to see you at River Community Church and get to know you.

And…from this May, River Community Church will be going through a new series, called the Frontline course…so come along and say hello.

It is Finished…

But it doesn’t end there…Join us at 11am Sunday 16 April at the chapel of Christ the King, Meeting Point House as we celebrate the greatest event in history.Calvary

On the lead up to Easter…

KingdomComeWe’ve been really enjoying looking in depth at the Lord’s prayer, each section at a time as we look towards Easter.   Each service stands alone well if you have not caught the others.  We would love to have you with us…

This Sunday, at the normal time of 3.30pm we have a great service of baptism and re-dedication to look forward to!  Jointly run by River Community Church and Dawley Baptist Church, we are meeting at Dawley Baptist for this celebration of faith.

Come along and listen or be inspired by what God has been doing in the lives of others, come to support them and pray for them in their commitment, think about your views, or to remind yourself of the commitments you have made along your adventure with God.

Weekend Away!!

Cloverley LargeWe had a wonderful weekend at Cloverley Hall, a beautiful, large country house.  We spent time looking at gifts- both as individuals and as a church.  We may continue this discussion in the future, and all can join in.  We missed those of you that could not make it but hope if we do it again, you will be able to join us.

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.

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 🙂

Love In Action

Throughout 2015, we saw a variety of activities including a treasure hunt, cream tea and rounders, trip to the beach, craft activities, bouncy ball races, litter picks and loads of fun, building community.

Now we are looking forward to all that 2016 will bring, which may include a group going to the Big church Day Out and the young people are planning to go to Soul Survivor Week A

Romans 12:1 (The Message)

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering.

Hebrews 13:16 (The Message)

 Make sure you don’t take things for granted and go slack in working for the common good; share what you have with others. God takes particular pleasure in acts of worship—a different kind of “sacrifice”—that take place in kitchen and workplace and on the streets.
