We are an active, multi-national congregation of about 120 from a range of backgrounds and some 15 countries. There is a wide age range, including some that have been attending since childhood, and we have a vibrant Junior Church aged 0 to 18. 

The vision of Wesley Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who love and serve God and others, and grow together in fellowship. We believe that all can have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ and that we are called to share the love and compassion of God with all.

Our team of minister, pastoral workers and stewards aims to promote a warm and loving relationship in the church. If you have any queries relating to the ministry of the church, you can speak to a steward in church or contact us at info@wesleychurchreading.org.

Joining with other churches
Wesley joins with other churches to form Churches Together in Reading and Churches Together in Earley and East Reading (CTEER).

Wesley has a fruitful partnership with St Andrew's United Reformed Church, London Road. Our collaborations have included the Diamond Jubilee lunch in 2012, and a Big Lunch every year since then, including the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, and the Walking Nativity round local streets. A Street Afternoon Tea was held for the Coronation.

Wesley also has links with Transform Reading (formerly Reading Christian Network), an ecumenical grouping of churches of all denominations within the Reading area. Leaders of the churches meet regularly to pray, and there are occasional joint celebrations. Churches also work together for co-ordinated outreach to the town, including Street Pastors, Churches in Reading Drop-In Centre (CIRDIC) and Christian Community Action (CCA). 

The Methodist circuit
Wesley is part of the Basingstoke and Reading Circuit of the Methodist Church, together with 25 other congregations.
