Pathways to growth

To be a disciple of Jesus is to accept the call to grow. It means not just knowing Jesus, but becoming more like Him. It means chasing after the good things that God has in store for us, taking hold of the good works He has prepared for us.
Below is an overview of the different ways you can take up that call to grow at River Church. Whoever you are, wherever you’re at in your faith journey, there is a new pathway – a next step – of growth for you.
Explore what they are, then fill in the form below to find out about taking part in any of them…
