Reflect Renew Revive

We are celebrating 150 years of worship and service.

On 4 December 1872 the foundation stones were laid for the new Wesley Church in Reading. The opening services were on 15 October 1873.

For the next few months we have a programme of worship and events.

Sunday 26 February: visit of Anthony Boateng, Vice-President of the Methodist Conference. He will preach on A Call for Revival.

You are welcome to join us at any of the events during the year. For full details of the programme, click the link below:
What's being planned

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

84QR project phase 2 now finished

Phase 2 of our 84QR Charity and Community hub project has now been completed, with the provision of a new kitchen and dining room and external
ramp to give step-free access to the building.

We are now planning the final phase 3 of the project.

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).
