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.

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.

Missed last Sunday? Share in our readings and hymns from Sunday morning.

Wesley Art Club meets on the first Saturday of the month.

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. They are being packed to go out in December.

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. 


Advent began on Sunday 2 December. This is the season when Christians anticipate the return of Jesus Christ. At Wesley, our Advent themes in worship are about getting to know the Biblical foundation to our faith.
2 December 'Your word is a light to my path'
9 December 'If Jesus is the Word ...'
16 December 'If Jesus is the Prince of Peace ...'
23 December 'If Jesus is the Light of the World ...'


The popular living nativity around the streets between Wesley and St Andrew's United Reformed Church will be back on 16 December with a slightly changed route. We start from Wesley at 2.30pm.
