After 5 years of contracting direct, I'm now about to get a contract via an agency (in the US/California). The work will be in London.

I've never had to have a (written) contract before, so I was wondering if there's a standard template I can look at. Maybe there's some website with some advice on this subject?

...or will the agency shove one in front of me, and expect me to sign?

got it in one. You should be able to negotiate changes though if you don't like some clauses. If you try to get some removed which they consider essential they will not budge.

If they are an ATSCO member then they may use the PCG contract with PCG members. Its fairly recent so not all ATSCO members use it, and of course you need to be a PCG member, however its a good contract that will go a long way towards putting you outside IR35.
