Also we have endeavoured to be a blessing to the Felixstowe Coast Patrol Rescue Service not only in providing vital funds for them but allowing them to store boats and equipment to the rear of the Christian Life Centre free of charge.
 
When Felixstowe’s “Spring Waters”  Pregnancy Crisis Centre was launched a few years ago, River of Life gave regular vital monthly funds to enable them to not have financial problems in their infancy.   
 
Additionally the church has supported Felixstowe Street Pastors and the Noisy Group in Ipswich.
 
Annually Samaritans Purse Shoe Box appeal is well supported by people in the fellowship who generously sow into the annual offering at River of Life. This offering enables as many shoe boxes as possible to be packed and sent from RoL. In addition the membership pack and also give shoe boxes. This whole enormous effort and expense is expertly overseen by volunteers.
 
Samaritans Purse is also supported at Christmas time with an offering for water filters. This has been a great blessing over many years.
 
River of Life Church saw a need several years ago for the Emergency Food Store. The need for this ministry has grown greatly and the fellowship give generously. In addition church leadership has allocated a monthly amount for the Emergency Food Store.
