Welcome to our Church

St Michaels church - people and building

Welcome to St Michael's, a calm and peaceful place of prayer, worship, friendship and hospitality.  For over eight hundred years, Christians have been worshipping here in the village of Tilehurst, now part of suburban Reading.  Our beautiful parish church is used regularly for worship, and prayers are said daily.  There are usually services at 08:00 and 09:30 on Sunday mornings, and on Sunday evenings at 18:30, with a mid-week service on Wednesday mornings.

St Michael's congregation meets regularly to witness the love of God expressed in the life, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.  On Sunday and Wednesday mornings our worship is focussed on the Eucharist - the communion meal - though on some Sundays we hold a less formal service of All Age Worship.  We are an inclusive church and draw strength from worshipping and praying together, and from being part of the worldwide community of Christians which endeavours to love and serve God in every aspect of life.

We look forward to welcoming you to St Michael's for one of our services or other activities, and hope very much that you enjoy your visit.
