Rivers is so named because we are inspired by the words of Jesus in John 7:37-39, and by the prophetic picture in Ezekiel 47:1-12. We believe that wherever the river of God’s Spirit flows there is life!
Our heart is to encourage each other in the truth that we can be filled to overflowing with the Spirit of God so that we will be blessed and be a blessing to those around us. We encourage everyone to reach out with the love and power of God to their family, friends, colleagues and neighbourhood to make Jesus known. We love the Message translation of John 1:14:
The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood.
We want to help each person in Rivers to grow in their calling and gifting so that they fulfil God’s purpose for their life.
We generally meet weekly on Thursdays at 7pm in a home in Orford for fellowship, prayer, sharing the bible and encouraging each other in outreach. We help serve the community at Orford King’s Table by providing food and encouraging those that gather. We use WhatsApp for chatting, praying together and for sharing what God is doing in our lives. At other times, in smaller groups, we meet for building relationships and mutual strengthening of faith. We are very happy to meet up for coffee and eat together whenever possible! We look forward to the times that our friends and neighbours will join us in our gatherings and believe having fun together is very acceptable!
