River Valley Church
We see a community of fully committed Christians, passionate about loving God and each other.
A community known all over the Valley for its demonstration of God's love by acts of mercy and service.
A community so full of joy, that people from all over the Valley and beyond will want what we have - the salvation of Jesus Christ.
About River Valley Church
We are a small community church nestled in the hills of the Upper Yarra Valley. We follow in the footsteps of the founding pastors, Andy & Jo Bennett, who have helped establish an amazing community of believers and a church that has faithfully, lovingly and sacrificially served the community around it.
It’s difficult to adequately convey what a treasure Andy and Jo and their children are to this community and what a privilege it is to serve them and this community in the coming days.
We were then blessed by the ministry of Rod Wilson who served us faithfully from 2015 – 2018.
As a body, we are entering into a new season. Although we no longer have a full-time pastor in a paid position, we have a vibrant team of volunteers serving in various roles.
We’re excited to be a part of what God is doing through this faithful community.
There’s a place for you at River Valley Church.
