About Us


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.

_img_5081We 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.
