In addition to the Sunday services the chapel is open to visitors on Thursdays and Saturdays from 10.30 am to 12.30 pm.
On the first Sunday of each month we often have a fellowship meal following the morning service – all are welcome. The next lunch will be held on 5 June 2022.
A one-to-one Bible reading scheme whereby individuals can read the gospel of St John with a member of the St Mary's congregation is available, please contact Mark at the chapel on Saturdays between 10.30 and 12.30 or email the chapel via the link on the Welcome page if you are interested.
The chapel takes part in the Reading Heritage open days and the next is in September 2022. The 2021 open days saw the chapel display information relating to the history of the building, a Harvest presentation on this year's Heritage theme "Edible England" and a display relating to missionaries sent from Reading churches from the late 19th century to the mid-20th century. This coincided with the publication of a book entitled "Sent from Reading" written by John Dearing, a member of St Mary's and a well-known local author.
Occasional events including rambles are organised — these are publicised in the monthly Newsletter.
