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.
‘Together we can Help.'
St Andrew's Link
Situated close the Royal Berks Hospital, St Andrew's members have for many years been part of the Hospital Community as doctors, nurses or volunteers or indeed our previous minister Revd Richard Becher, was part of the Hospital Chaplaincy team.
We are pleased to support the RBH Intensive care team who twice each year organise and lead a Memorial Service for the families of those patients who have passed away in the unit.
In addition, regular building users include the Blood Transfusion Service, Prostate Cancer, Bladder Cancer and Reading Diabetes UK groups.
Part of our Vision is to be at the Heart of our local Community, so if you need support for one of these conditions, please see our 'Useful Links' Page.
We welcome families and have an active Junior Church, where during morning service our young people leave with trained leaders for their own groups .
Safeguarding is taken seriously at St Andrew's and all our Junior Church leaders have been subject to DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks and have appropriate certification.
We invite you to join us at one of our worship services.
St. Andrew’s URC seeks to provide a happy friendly atmosphere whilst providing a safe, caring Christian family environment for all children and young people who come on to church premises.
We are truly multicultural with peoples from over 20 nations worshipping together.
You will be made very welcome.

As a church with people from over 20 nations worshipping and sharing together, perhaps it's no surprise that a stanger, a foreigner from Peru came to visit and was made welcome,
