About Us

Vision 2019

River is a community of four churches which meet in MarlowMaidenheadSlough and Englefield Green

We are united by our passion for Jesus and a shared vision that we are called to bring His life and His kingdom wherever we flow, especially to our local communities and to His church: “Wherever the river flows, everything will live” (Ezekiel 47:9). We do that through a shared set of values:

Look on the face of Christ

Our faith is not primarily a religion, something we do, but a relationship with the God revealed by Jesus, a Father who loves us as His children. As we see the goodness of God throughout the Bible and in every circumstance of life, and we spend time intentionally entering God’s presence through Spirit filled gatherings and devotions, we become more like Jesus.

Love everyone we meet

The Bible tells us God is love and we are to be like Him, loving all people in the hope that all will be saved. Therefore we are committed to building relational, radical and inclusive communities of Jesus followers, and serving in our communities both near and far, sharing good news and building relationships.

Live like heaven is near

God has given us His Spirit and empowers each of us to bring a little heaven to earth. So we courageously expect God to do the impossible through every one of us as we each fulfil our Spirit-led calling. This happens in all kinds of ways: some are beautiful like acts of kindness and compassion, others are practical like leadership and administration, or supernatural like healing and prophecy.

River Church started in the 70’s with an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on a group of young people, and has grown to the four churches we are today. We are non-denominational, a part of the Pioneer Network of churches and a member of the Evangelical Alliance.
