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. On 21 September we start a short series on Discipleship.

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.

FAREWELL TO THE WOMEN'S CENTRE
The Churches in Reading Women's Centre has been based at Wesley since its foundation in 1991. From September they will move to Emmanuel Church, Oxford Road, to be closer to most of their users.
It is quite a break for us after so long, but we wish the Centre every blessing on their move.
