Sunday Worship and Junior Church begin at 11.00am   (10.45 on Remembrance Sunday)

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

 Our Church

Who we are

Where we are

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.
