The Reading branch was set up in 1989, by Margaret and Phil Holder, then pastor of Wycliffe Baptist Church. Having discovered how lonesome and difficult life can be for foreign students in the UK, God gave Phil a vision to create a forum where foreign students can be assisted to integrate into the UK and their needs met. The Reading branch became aware of the other branches and joined them to make the national fellowship.

Since it was established, the ACF has grown into a fellowship for Christians from all works of life. Whilst maintaining the vision of caring and supporting students to attain their noble goals at the University, the fellowship is now a forum for equipping and training. Christian ladies and gentlemen to make positive impact at the university, the local community and serve as a resource to local churches in many parts of the United Kingdom.
