Greyfriars & New Hope Church

Reading, Reading, England, United Kingdom

Our vision as a church is to see Reading transformed by the love and power of Jesus.

Greyfriars Church has been on the same site in Reading for hundreds of years, proclaiming the Good News of Jesus and serving the poor in Reading. We continue that mission as a group of believers coming from different parts of Reading, different backgrounds and different ages.

Our parish is made up of two churches, Greyfriars and New Hope, with one PCC and one team that oversees the activities within them.

There are so many ways you can get involved in the life of our church, through groups, serving, giving and worshiping with us.
