We welcome Mr Graham Chewter of the Trinitarian Bible Society to our meeting on Tuesday 8 November. The meeting will begin at 8 pm, and be held in the church hall. All are welcome.
Most months on the first Sunday we have a fellowship meal following the morning service - all are welcome. The next one is on the 4 November and our Chapel Anniversary lunch will be on the 16 December.
Our 2017 Advent series was entitled, ‘Living in the End Times’. A flyer, with meeting details, can be downloaded here. A pdf of the subject can be downloaded here – Session 1, Session 2, Session 3, Session 4.
We are part of The Church of England (Continuing) and attended the Annual Assembly on Saturday 1 July. This was held at Benson Parish Hall, Oxfordshire. Our speaker this year was the Rev Maurice Roberts, from Inverness. Recordings of his two addresses are found here (first session, ‘Justification by faith’) and here (second session, ‘More than conquerors’).
The Heritage weekend in September 2018 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. The Chapel was open on Thursday and Friday between 10 am and 2 pm, and on Saturday between 9 am and 6.00 pm, as well as the scheduled services on the Sunday. It is anticipated that the chapel will again take part in the Heritage week(s) in 2019 – the dates for Reading will be September 13 to 22, the chapel's opening times will be published nearer the time.
Occasional events including rambles are organised — these are publicised in the monthly Newsletter.
