St John & St Stephen’s Church is a diverse church in the area of Newtown, Reading, (near Cemetery Junction).
We have a well defined vision of growing an inclusive and progressive family church within the parish, placing a greater emphasis on worship from which our commitment to social justice will flow. This continues to require a development of practical theology and we attempt to deliver that in different contexts. Therefore teaching for not only the local community but also the wider church.
We have taken strides to develop our Sunday worship in accordance with this vision and have seen a steady rise in the number of children and their families attending services. We have developed a multicultural worshipping congregation.
Visitors are most welcome to join us on any Sunday, or during the week at the Café.
