First Time? What to Expect

PJ’s and coffee in hand or outside enjoying the sunshine – however you choose to watch our online service we hope you will feel the warmth of our church community coming through the screen.

When you log on to, you will see the chat function where we say some hellos and make connections.  The ‘request prayer’ button is a confidential chat message between you and one of our pastors.  We place a high value on personal relationships and really do want to get to know you so let us know you’re watching.

We sing some, talk some and end with a closing song.  The first Sunday of the month we participate together with communion.

When we go back to in person meetings, our desire is that River of Life would be a place where everyone feels at ease. If you feel more comfortable getting dressed up for church by all means, do that! Or if you’d rather show up in your shorts and t-shirt, that’s great too!

We like good music, a good word, coffee, and friends. Our worship team starts us off with a time of praise, and after taking up the offering we dismiss our kidz for Sunday school. Then, it’s time for coffee, or tea if you prefer!   This gives us an opportunity to connect with each other, and meet some new friends. After the sermon, don’t feel like you have to rush away while clean-up happens, we would love to get to know you more!
