Rivers Baptist started in the 1960’s with five families meeting in a home. This group grew over the next few years and in 1968 became the Lawnton Baptist church. In 2002 the church changed its name to Rivers Baptist church. Throughout our history, Rivers Baptist has always been an effective witness to God’s goodness and greatness.
Today Rivers is a refreshingly honest church. We feel free to be ourselves and we’re more like an extended family than an organisation. As a church community we are on a continuing journey to discover how to be the people of God. We’re doing this by listening to God, each other and our neighbours.
New people are very welcome at Rivers. Find out what to expect when you come to our church.
