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.

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.
Wesley Art Club meets on the first Saturday of the month.
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 are raising further funds for the village, including the purchase of a computer for school.
HARVEST TIMEWe celebrated harvest on 30 September, with a bring-and-share lunch to follow. Rev. David Shaw spoke about the story of Ruth, and the idea of leaving 'gleanings' for those in need, rather than take all we can for ourselves.
JUNIOR CHURCH SERVICE
'Women of the Bible' was the theme Junior Church chose for their anniversary service on 1 July. The three classes gave spirited sessions on Lydia (a businesswomen in The Acts of the Apostles), Miriam and Jochabad (Moses' sister and mother), and Rebecca (Jacob and Esau's mother). Afterwards we had a lively bring & share lunch together.
HANNAH'S GONE TO COLOMBIAHannah, one of Wesley's members, has gone to Colombia with Tearfund for September. Below is the playground of a school where she is teaching English.
She raised money to contribute to her funding by doing sponsored walks along the Thames path, with friends.
THE GLORY OF GOD
Some Junior Church illustrations of Psalm 19: The heavens declare the glory of God: the skies proclaim the work
of his hands. Their voice goes out into all the Earth; their words to
the ends of the world.
