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.

New to us, or new to church? Take a look at our Visitor's Page for what to expect from a Sunday service.

Sundays difficult? If you're not able to get to Sunday worship, we have many weekday meetings. Take a look at these:

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 7.45, finish at 9.00, and include refreshments, music and worship. On 18 January a new series began on the gospel of John.

Traidcraft is an important part of Wesley's mission activity. There is a Traidcraft stall appproximately once a month on a Sunday morning.

Through our Traidcraft links, we have supported a project to provide Amankwatia village, Ghana, with its own water borehole and pump, and a new toilet block.

Now Junior Church have been leading further fund-raising for the village, including the purchase of computers for school. The efforts have resulted in several computers being prepared for shipment to Amankwatia, we hope before Christmas.

Norman, a member of Wesley, has been commissioned as a Street Pastor - supported at the service by several others from the church. The work of street pastors is continuing to grow and is a real blessing to the town.

Street Pastors have won a Pride of Reading 2018 award. 


Prayer is important - indeed, vital. That was the message in worship on Sunday 28 October. Preaching from Job chapter 42 and Mark chapter 10, Marion Cruddas showed how Job's reward came after he had prayed for his friends, and Bartimaeus's faithfulness gave him sight - and insight. How faithful are we in prayer?

Last Sunday, 4 November, we returned to Job to consider faithfulness and redemption.


Dealing with mental health is an issue facing many. How does Christian faith help? This was the subject of a special Bible study on Thursday 1 November at 7.45pm.

This Thursday 22 November it's issues of money and work.

Rembrance Sunday marked the centenary of the end of the First World War.
Wesley's Remebrance Sunday service used the froms of service appropriate to the centenary, including reading from a Bible presented to someone in 1916, as we remembered, and also looked forward in hope to the promised new creation.


The popular living nativity around the streets between Wesley and St Andrew's United Reformed Church will be back on 16 December. Watch for more details.
