Change to pattern of services

The service type and pattern in the Parish is now changing, following the review by Rev. Sue Ball and the PCC. 

Below are the key changes that have been made, following consultation with the local community and churchgoers. 

1. From February 2022, all 5th Sunday services are being held at St. John's church in Read

This has removed some of the confusion over the location of the 5th Sunday service.

2. From 1st May 2022 all Sunday morning services will start at 10:00 am

This follows the online and church survey where an overwhelming majority voted for this change.

3. From 4th May 2022 a new weekly service is being launched. The 545 Service.

    St. John's Read on Wednesday's at 5:45 pm.

This is an all age communion service aimed at anyone and especially those who cannot attend the Sunday services.

 Please come along and join in.
