RiverLife Church (BIEC), Bern Switzerland

Type: Church
A multinational English-speaking, evangelical Church in the centre of Bern, Switzerland

RiverLife's vision is taken from mark 12:30-31.

To love the lord our god...

  • with all our heart- through worship in song and in our everyday living
  • with all our soul- expecting to see the power of his spirit working through us and performing wonders
  • with all our mind- coming to understand, love, and be changed by his word
  • with all our strength by works of service- loving our neighbor as ourselves

Riverlife Bern is a unique church in the center of Bern city, Switzerland.  Attended by people from over 30 nations, we worship together in English, in the love of Jesus Christ, our Savior.  We are a dynamic group of people from all ages, with a strong Sunday school and youth group.  Our Sunday worship sees various musical teams leading, often each member from a different country.  In normal times, we have up to 150 attendees on a Sunday afternoon, with often more attending our legendary “Bring and Share” dinners with their international dishes.

We are focused on a simple bible core, and through friendship, prayer and our pastoral teams, really reach out to our people in need.  As our congregation comes from all over the globe, we have a strong focus on missionary ministry, and often people pass through our church on their way to spread the word.  This flow of people means the church is always changing, as seasons of people join and move on into the world.
