The local church plays a big role in supporting you and we know from experience that being grounded in a good church makes university a much smoother experience. Here is a list of some great local churches, most of them within walking distance from SOAS. We advise that as soon as you get to London you get stuck into a local church. Most of these churches have a SOASian or two attending, and all of them have good student base.
Here’s a handy map of where they all are as well: SOAS Church Search Map.
