Life by the River

They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do. Psalm 1 vs 3

River Church International is a non-denominational, multi-racial Christian community for people of all ages. Established in the late 1990’s, the church has experienced consistent growth and is currently led by an eldership team headed by Marc and Kirsty Dewrance.


The leadership of River Church places a high value on meaningful partnership with other churches, both in our region and beyond. As such, we have strong links with other well-established churches in the Zululand region and KwaZulu-Natal. In addition, we partner with New Covenant Ministries International (NCMI).

SIMPLICITY with Marc Dewrance

29 October 2023



At River Church we believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the foundation of all we do. We believe that God is always speaking and it is our desire to be led by the Holy Spirit in all aspects of life.

We desire to build strong friendships within our community of faith, and to see the people entering into vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe that church is a place where people can encourage one another and grow in their relationship with God.

We believe that River Church exists for the benefit of our region, to impact our wider community with the love of God. We also believe that God has called us to reach the nations of the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ, leaders raised up and churches planted.

To find out more about the ministries, outreach programmes and mission trips that take place through River Church, please contact our office.
We’d love to hear from you!
