Riviera Life Church is a multi generational church, which values equality and diversity and therefore provides activities, support and encouragement to people of all ages from a variety of backgrounds and walks of life. A sense of “Family” is valued and cultivated where people feel Welcomed and “at home,” allowing individuals to be “real” without fear of being judged, only accepted.

Riviera Life Church exists to help people build strong and healthy
God-centred lives.

The Vision of RLC is founded on Isaiah 61;
Proclaiming the Good News,
Rebuilding broken lives,
Restoring hope,
Renewing communities.

What We Believe

Discipleship

Discipleship is about being an ‘all in’ follower of Jesus Christ and it is about helping, encouraging, practically teaching, relationally guiding, coaching, mentoring and equipping others to become the same.

Mission

Mission is reaching out into the community with the Gospel message, individually and collectively, by the way we speak and act, addressing practical, emotional and spiritual needs.

Prayer

Prayer underpins all that we are and do; recognising that without constantly connecting and communicating with God we are and can do nothing significant and lasting.
