In addition to the Sunday services the chapel is normally open to visitors on Thursdays from 10.00 am to 2 pm, on Fridays from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and on the first Saturday of each month.
Most months on the first Sunday we have a fellowship meal following the morning service – all are welcome. The next lunch will be on the 1st September.
We are part of The Church of England (Continuing) and attended the Annual Assembly on Saturday 29 June at Benson, Oxfordshire. Click here for details.
The chapel will again take part in the Reading Heritage open days in 2019 – the dates are September 13 to 22, the chapel's opening times will be from 10 to 2 on both Fridays, the 13th and 20th, and also on Saturday the 21st. On the first Saturday, the 14th it will be open from 9 am to late afternoon as we also support Ride + Stride. We will also be open for our normal Sunday services during this period (September 15th and 22nd). This year the theme is People Power which is very apt for us and we will focus on people connected to the chapel.
Last year the Heritage weekend displays at St Mary's were based on the Light of the World / lighting at St Mary's Castle Street and Women missionaries sent from St Mary's in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Occasional events including rambles are organised — these are publicised in the monthly Newsletter.
