Riverlife Church supports many charities –
both in our city and worldwide.


We believe that it is important to financially support the work of other Christian organsiations who's objective is to show Gods love.  As we help those in need we have seen many blessings come into our own Church.  

We are currently supporting organisations working in Sunderland such as Wearside Youth For Christ and a variety of missions which are making a difference across the world.  In the months leading up to Christmas we also collect items for The Sunderland Women's Refuge, food hampers for local families and brand new toys and gifts for homeless children and young people. If you can help with any donations for these needs please contact us.
