St Mary’s Episcopal Chapel is located in Reading town centre and is open for worship each Sunday
with services at 11 am and 6.30 pm. Current evening sermons are on the armour of God, from Ephesians 6:10–18. Audio recordings are available on the Worship page.
There is normally a Bible study and prayer meeting on Tuesday evenings, for information please contact the chapel on 0118 959 5131. Our current topic is the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion.
The chapel is open to visitors between 10 am and 2 pm on Thursdays: also on the first Saturday morning of each month.
The fact that there is another St Mary’s in Reading (St Mary the Virgin, or the Minster Church, in St Mary’s Butts) can cause confusion. We are, properly speaking, the chapel in the parish of St Mary, hence St Mary’s Chapel. In fact we have no dedication, and began as a proprietary chapel (owned by its first trustees) outside the Church of England.
Worship has always been according to the Book of Common Prayer of 1662. More information is available in the book, The Church that would not die, advertised here.
