Welcome - whether you are just starting university or have already got going we invite you to explore the opportunities and challenges of studentdom with us by being connected into a local Church community as 'missionaries' at university. River Church is a network of congregations across the Thames Valley, Marlow, Maidenhead, Slough and The Journey in Englefield Green. We warmly welcome you to make a home with us.


If you are preparing to go to university this autumn then get linked up with Fusion who are partnering with Churches across the UK for Student Linkup -  a resource to equip and inspire you for the challenges and opportunities ahead as you go to uni. There is a Fusion website with allsorts of helpful stuff for starting uni and Facebook groups to help link you in when you reach your town or city. The River students cell gathers over the summer before sending you to uni, and then catch-ups in the holiday breaks to provide space for support and friendship.

River Church Student Reps are based in each of our congregations to support and help you get involved with the Church and be resources and encouraged as students at university.

Student Stories


Hi everyone! For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Sam Bullen and I’m 20 years old. I’m part of Maidenhead Congregation, but I’m currently at Loughborough University studying Product Design and Manufacture Engineering. 
I was really challenged by people’s stories at Christmas of praying with their friends etc and by how much everyone was getting stuck in- it was fantastic! 
I want to love my uniwhats it all about
