Wesley Church


Worshipping and witnessing in Reading and online

Wesley Methodist Church is close to the centre of Reading with worship, fellowship and witness at its heart.

Worship at Wesley
We meet at Wesley for worship every Sunday at 10.30am.
Evening services are planned once or twice a month. The next is on Sunday 15 May. Services start at 6.30pm.

The Lord is God and he has made his light shine upon us. (Psalm 118.27)

84QR project phase 2 construction will start soon
Phase 1 of the project to reconstruct the ground floor of the old manse at 84 Queen's Road has now been completed, with the provision of new accessible toilets.
The contractors have been appointed for Phase 2 to begin construction as soon as possible for this next stage of our exciting 84QR Charity and Community hub project.

The Earley Charity supports phase 2
The Earley Charity has made a grant to support phase 2 of the 84QR development. This will enable us to proceed with the development of the kitchen, which should follow shortly after phase 1 has been finished.

If you would like to support our 84QR project, we shall be pleased to hear from you.

You will keep in perfect peace them whose mind is steadfast, because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord for ever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the Rock eternal.' (Isaiah 26:3-4)

‘Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God’ (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).
