Abbey Baptist Church, Reading

A place of prayer A place of discovery A place of refuge


 Join us in living out the Gospel in Reading!

We are a community worshipping in the centre of Reading, in the historic Abbey Quarter.

We meet in a modern building, but the church's history goes back to 1640 when it was the first Baptist Church to be formed in Reading, in a time of great social, civil, political and religious unrest.

Times have changed, yet we are committed to the same essential task to which those early Baptists set their hands - prayer, worship, mutual care and the proclamation of the good news of Jesus Christ.

The Covid-19 pandemic has limited our activities.  Nonetheless, we are currently open for personal prayer during the working week between 10am and 12noon.

We continue to worship on Sundays.  You can join us at the church , where our services start at 10.30am.  Or join us from home using our home-based worship sheets.

In these pages you will find something of our present life and our future hopes.
