Welcome to River West Christian Church
You are welcome here! We are a church interested in what God is up to in your life. Though we can’t be sure what He is doing in you, we do know that He is up to something and that it is good, very good. Have a look around our website and maybe, just maybe, His work in you will bring you to River West. We’d be happy if it did…

What to Expect:
Our doors are open to everyone regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey. We are a community church where people from different cultures and backgrounds can gather in unity to worship our Lord Jesus Christ, meet new friends and serve the community together. We pray that you will experience the presence and love of God through the worship, teaching and community at River West.
We are located at 19815 45 Ave NW Edmonton just off of 199th Street SW. We are west of the Anthony Henday between the Lessard Road and Callingwood Road Exits.
Our Church Service
Worship and the Word
If you are planning your first visit to River West, you can expect a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. You will experience contemporary worship and hear a Bible-centered message that is practical, engaging, relevant and challenging to your life.
We celebrate communion on the first weekend of every month. We welcome anyone who is a believer and follower of Jesus Christ to partake with us.
Kids and Youth Programs
If you have little ones, we have a supervised nursery for children 6 - 36 months available from 9:50 to 11:30 during the services on Sunday mornings. Parents are welcome to stay in the nursery with babies 0-6 months. If you need a quiet place for your little one there is also an infant and mother's room available at the back of the Sanctuary.
For children, we have our “Wonderland (Age 3-5)” and “Kid’s Church (Grade 1-6)” programs that run during the message time of the service. Children will be dismissed part way through the service to attend an age appropriate time of teaching. They will return to the Sanctuary at the end of the service.
If you have any questions, please ask an usher or the person who greeted you at the door to help direct you to the Children’s ministry worker in charge for the morning. We'll be happy to meet you during your visit and help you get connected.
Our Youth program (for teens Grade 7 and up) is held on Friday evenings. Sunday mornings youth are encouraged to participate in the service and volunteer in the various ministry opportunities available.
Needing prayer? Trained, compassionate intercessors are available after each Sunday service (at the front of the sanctuary to the left of the stage) to come alongside anyone who wants to be prayed for in person, in the moment.
Connections Café serves coffee and tea before the service. After the service, coffee, tea and juice are available as well as some homemade goodies. Plan to stay and visit. We’d love to get to know you a bit more.
Every month or two we have a community potluck, dinner or BBQ. Check our calendar for the next date. Bring something to share or just come and have lunch and get to know people in the church community. A great time to connect.
The Library is in our Fireside Room and offers a large selection of fiction and non-fiction books, DVDs and CDs for borrowing.
