The Bright Well
The name Britwell derives from the old English beorhtan wiellan meaning 'bright, clear well'. Ever since River Church Slough was placed in this community, we have heard these words spoken out over the whole estate:…”With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. Isaiah 12:3.” It is our aim to be that bright well, offering a place of worship, Christian teaching, service and a loving spirit to the surrounding neighbourhoods.
River Church is a community of believers passionate about being a welcoming family of God’s children, who passionately pursue His presence in worship, who are intentional about praying for miracles and healing, eager to reach out to the Community around us as we partner with God the Father… God the Son, Jesus Christ … and God the Holy Spirit. It is our aim to bring the Good News of God’s loving presence so that His Kingdom becomes the kingdom of this world.
It's also our aim to fulfil the Great Commission of bringing people into a life-changing encounter with Jesus. We work towards this goal through various means of reaching out to the people in our community. One of the things we offer is our Saturday Morning Pop-Up events with cakes and other activities in the shopping precinct in Britwell, under the Red Gazebo. This is a popular monthly event, where we also interact with members of our community by just offering a cake, a smile, a listening ear and letting people know that God cares.
