Close to the town centre of Reading, Wesley is a friendly church with worship and fellowship at its centre, where all are made welcome. Our Sunday services are at 10.30am and 6.30pm. For the Week at Wesley click here. For worship this quarter click here.
Small groups for fellowship, Bible study, prayer and church life development meet regularly. Find out more by exploring our website, or pay us a visit.
For more in-depth teaching and discussion, a group meets at Wesley most Thursday evenings to study a book of the Bible, led by various members of the church. Meetings are 7.30 for 8.00 for an hour, and include refreshments, music and worship. Our current study is 1 Corinthians.
Wesley Painting Club meets on the first Saturday of the month.
Scaffolding has been taken down from the spire now that the repaired windows have been replaced. We can make the entrance more presentable.
Attention turns to upgrading the adjacent building - the old manse, 84 Queen's Road - for outreach and mission. The architect is now preparing the design.
'Aspire 84' is the current development project at Wesley church.
Traidcraft is an important part of Wesley's mission activity. Through it, we have supported the project to provide Amankwatia village, Ghana, with its own water borehole and pump, and a new toilet block. There is a Traidcraft stall appproximately once a month on a Sunday morning.

BIG LUNCH 2017
Big Lunch was on Sunday 11 June, organised by Wesley and St Andrew's
URC in Eldon Square Gardens. The sun came out, the rain held off, the
food was good!
Saints Alive by Roger Jones was performed as a 'musical from scratch' on 20 May during the 'circuit gathering' for members and friends of the Basingstoke and Reading Circuit. It was a most joyful occasion, with orchestra, choir and audience praising God through music.
