How we worship.
In recent years, we have been able to show that our doors are open for God’s business. Our regular services on Sundays and Wednesdays are complimented by midday prayers throughout the week, Bible reflection courses, periodic worship in collaboration with a wide range of services.
How we engage with the wider community.
Throughout the week, the Minster opens its doors for the community. It draws on its Benedictine heritage to provide a welcome, to be hospitable, and to be a place of renewal and refreshment. Our fantastic team of Daytime volunteers are able to offer a cup of tea or coffee, a listening ear and can also signpost people to specific support if needed.
How we engage with Civic Reading.
Throughout the year, Reading Minster provides the sense of occasion, celebration and public mourning for the civic community. We work with the High Sheriff of Berkshire and Reading Borough Council in hosting the annual Opening of the Crown Court and with the office of the Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire and the Royal Berkshire regiment on organising Remembrance Day services at the Minster and Cenotaph.
