Wesley is near the town centre, in the heart of both the old commercial and residential parts of Reading. The church, built in 1873, is a listed building in the traditional style and a landmark in the town. In 1997/8 it was refurbished and given a major extension. The exterior was cleaned, enhancing the decorative masonry, and the interior was repainted. A new welcome area with coffee bar was built, sensitively complementing the church’s architecture, and the existing ancillary rooms were added to and improved. The acoustic of the sanctuary is excellent, especially for choirs, and it has a Forster & Andrews organ built in 1874 and refurbished in 1999. The church is often used for concerts, and most rooms are available for hire. For first-time visitors there is always a 'wow' factor when they see the interior of the church.

Also on the site is the former manse, known as 84 Queen's Road, recently redeveloped as a charity and community hub. For more on this project, click here.
