River of Life Christian Centre
WE EXIST SIMPLY TO MAKE JESUS KNOWN
About Our Church
We are a lively group of people from all walks of life whose common desire is to make Jesus known and to see each person live a fulfilled life. We are a Bible-based Church meeting in the North of Bristol
in the 1,300-year-old village of Westbury on Trym.
No individual can accomplish more than everyone combined.
River of Life is made up of ordinary people whose lives have been changed by Jesus Christ and now desire to make change possible for others. Our Church is not built on the talent of a few but on the effort of all, from the welcome team to the preacher and everything in-between. At River of Life, we are united in the desire to work together to build a Church that will impact the lives of all who attend.

"Church is more than just getting together on a Sunday;
it’s a relationship with God and a relationship with
a community of people every day."
These sessions take place as part of our Sunday service. As the name suggests, it’s a question and answer time where we hear the story and have an opportunity to connect with of one of the church members. It can be surprising what you learn.
Any group that meets separately from the Sunday service is a Connect/Link Group. Some meet weekly, others meet fortnightly or monthly. These groups are a place where we come together, usually around food or tea and coffee, to enjoy time with friends, build relationships and share our experiences in our walk with God. We have several Connect/Link Groups that meet at different locations – whoever you are, there is a Connect Group for you!
We believe that Christ has called His church to reach men and help them lead powerful, transformed lives. The men at River of Live meet throughout the year at various venues to enjoy a great breakfast and to discuss their faith.
The ladies at River of Life meet fortnightly for a brunch. They discuss scripture, a recent book or listen to a teaching - either live or by DVD.
Fun Bike Ride and Breakfasts
A easy cycle ride followed by a breakfast at a local cafe. It’s a great time for the family and for those who can’t or won’t, you can just show up at the venue.
As a church family, we enjoy celebrating the life Jesus came to provide. One way we do this is by sharing a meal together. We do this several times throughout the year and it's a great opportunity to invite friends and introduce them to the church. Christmas is an obvious occasion, Summer BBQ’s or picnics are another favourite.
