The vision of our church is to be a spiritual home for thousands who are vibrantly committed to loving God and loving people.
A church where every person and every generation is inspired to follow Jesus with passion and conviction — where every heart is enlarged, every mind is illuminated and every life is transformed.
To grow a people like that, we need to build a place like this. A building within which people can gather and grow.
Let me invite you to pray, work and give toward this vision. And let’s get ready for God to do great things!
I see a church that loves, celebrates and inspires all of the generations. A church with older generations who have the heart of spiritual parents and so joyfully champion those younger than themselves; that push the ceiling of our church ever higher for it to be the floor of those coming after.
A church with younger generations who honour and respect those who’ve gone before and appreciate the opportunities they’ve been given to reach their full potential and impact the world for Christ. A church of and for all generations but known for the energy and vitality of the young at heart.
I see a church with a culture of building places and spaces that honour God and value people; that creates environments that reflect the reality of God and speak welcome to others. I see a church so healthy and vibrant that it overflows its own facilities and so births other places, other gatherings, other churches. A church that is as passionate about ‘the’ church thriving and growing as it is about our church thriving and growing; that has a spirit of generosity and seeks to bless and sow into Christ’s church both near and far.
We love our kids and we are excited to be doing all that we can to create environments where they are shaped and encouraged to follow Jesus. These new spaces, with their modern facilities and improved access, will be safe, engaging and fun.
All generations are valued at Riverview. We are creating a range of inviting medium sized spaces where all people can gather around a shared age group, interest or passion. These multi-purposed environments will be in the upstairs area of the next renovation stage and will be ideal for youth, young adults and seniors as well as providing space for a range of educational, connection and discipleship opportunities.
OFFICES AND RECEPTION
In order to make use of all the space in our building, the empty ceiling space above our old foyer has been reclaimed and will soon serve as a new office and reception environment with increased accessibility. This allows for more space to be created for groups and ministries in other areas of the building.
All tax receipts are issued at the end of the financial year. We will need your personal details so please make sure you provide them to us on the 'Our Church' envelope or page on the website.
