Children and toddlers are most welcome and our Junior Church Children and Leaders leave for their own group activities part way through the service.

We have prepared the following Church Profile (below) which was part of our search that brought John to join Robert in our team ministry.
St Andrew's Presbyterian Church
Here is a little of the early history of how our church came into being almost 140 years ago.
Copyright St Andrew's URC, Reading 2017
We are situated next to Readings' Royal Berks Hospital on the corner of London Road and Craven Road and close to both Reading and Thames Valley Universities. The entrance to our car park is via Craven Road.
Our worship room is up-stairs with lift for those who find stairs difficult and we have full accessible facilities on the ground floor.
We are family friendly church from a gathered community with a large multi-ethnic diversity.
As a multicultural Church, the URC affirms its reforming, uniting and non-conforming ethos, intentionally committing itself to an intercultural journey and that calls us to
embody God's love,
live God's word,
promote God's justice,
and practice expansive hospitality,
the Jesus way.
In our mission, we seek to be at the heart of the local Community and provide joyful and thoughtful worship and to show God’s love for everyone in all we say and do.
Read what Revd Dr Michael Jagasser, Moderator of the URC General wrote about us following his visit to conduct morning worship on Sun 23rd February.
We support the work of the RBH Trust Hospital Chaplaincy team Revd's Bob Simmons and Lorraine Colum in the witness and support they provide to Staff, Patients and their families.
Please join us in prayers for the patients and their families, and all those who care for them, doctors, nurses and auxilliaries, carers and volunteers in our hospitals and care homes throughout the country
