Wesley Church


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.

What's Christianity?




Did you see the steeplejacks at work on the spire? The repointing is now done. Some repairs will be carried out on the windows. Then ...

Attention turns to upgrading the adjacent building - the old manse, 84 Queen's Road - for outreach and mission.

'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.

In Jesus Christ all things are made new. We celebrate this in our worship at the beginning of 2017, in our annual covenant service, and as we join with other churches in the Bed for the Night project.

The annual living nativity was on 18 December this year. Starting at Wesley at 2.30pm, we walked through the streets reaching St Andrew's church by the hospital about 4.00.
