Welcome to the website of the Parish of the English Martyrs, Reading. I hope that you will find in these pages all that you are seeking.
Our Parish is undertaking renewal as it prepares to celebrate the centenary of the laying of its foundation stone in 1925. As we reflect on our forebears who planned and built our church 100 years ago in the immediate aftermath of the First World War and Spanish flu, we take inspiration from their courage and vision. We are striving to build a welcoming parish that invites, encourages and supports all to have an ever-deepening relationship with Jesus Christ and that express God’s love with joy and hope.
Should you wish to join us you would be most welcome.
