Welcome to St Andrew's URC, Reading, we invite you to join us any Sunday morning or at one of our regular activities.

 

We are part of a joint pastorate of United Reformed Churches in Reading with a shared ministry team of Revd Robert

Barthram and Revd John Downing and we invite you to join us at one of our churches situated across Reading.

The United Reformed Church doctrine is from the Reformed tradition and was formed by the amalgamation of the

Presbyterian and Congregational Churches of England and later with the Churches of Christ.

You will be made very welcome.

Paddington Bear Safeguarding Policy Document - Oct 2019

IMPORTANT - St Andrew's Church Car Park - Warning Notice

 

Due to a high number of unauthorised users parking in rented spaces, the Church Meeting in October 18 agreed to use a car park management company to which authorised car park users can upload a picture of the offending vehicle occupying their space.

The company will then obtain the vehicle owner's details and issue a penalty charge notice of £100.

Prominent Warning Signage is on Display.

ReadiFood

Readifood have moved to bigger premises in Boulton Road and are providing essential support to an increasing number of families every month. Food is supplied by referral only so the need is very real.  

 

Readifood boxes are located at doors of our worship room and any food stuffs in a tin, bottle or packet and in reasonable date are welcome.

 

Thank you for your continued support throughout the year.
