Who Are We?


The people

Rivergum Community Church is a group of ordinary people, who are on a journey of growth and discovery. We're experiencing the difference God can make in our lives through His Son, Jesus Christ. We want to embrace the simple, uncluttered Christianity inspired by the life and teaching of Jesus. And like Jesus, we're here to serve - to help people belong, believe, and to become all God wants them to be.


The name

The Australian Red River Gum lines the watercourses of our great land, and is a provider and protector of life for many different creatures. In a similar way, we want to be a life-promoting and life-giving community of hope and care to our local community and beyond. We want to be a healthy church, growing robust disciples so that individually and collectively we can be

'Like a tree planted by streams of waters,
Which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever we do prospers'.

(Psalm 1:3)
