Change to pattern of services

The service type and pattern in the Parish is now under review with the PCC following the appointment of our new Vicar, Revd. Sue Ball. This process will involve consulting with the local community and churchgoers and you will have the opportunity to take part in a survey in the coming months. Whilst this process takes place, one immediate change has been agreed by the PCC, to remove some of the confusion over the location of the 5th Sunday service. With effect from February 2022, all 5th Sunday services will be held at St. John's church in Read.

[ 29th May, 31st July and 30th October 2022]
