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.

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.


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 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.
