EM 01

The English Martyrs' Roman Catholic Church.

Part of the Reading Pastoral Area.

Our aim is to serve and enhance the liturgy, encouraging all to raise their voices,

thus raising minds and spirits to God.



Our Music Groups

   Saturday 6.30pm Mass     An organist and a choir.

   Sunday 9.30am Mass         A ‘folk style’ group.

   Sunday 11.30am Mass        An organist and a choir.

   Sunday 5pm Mass                 Singing lead and accompanied by a guitarist.


In addition we also have a Youth Choir who sing at the monthly Sunday Youth Mass.

This is usually the 5.00pm Mass, but please check the newsletter in case of changes.


In addition to singing and playing at their respective Masses, our enthusiastic groups of musicians and singers combine to also perform

at important liturgical celebrations like the Easter Tridium and Advent.


There are also visits to Care Homes and Day Centres to entertain residents with sing-a-longs throughout the year and during the lead

up to Christmas, Carol Concerts are also performed.


There is also the occasional social get together.












We are always on the lookout for more singers and musicians to join and enhance these groups so if you can play an instrument or sing and would like to either join a group or just find out more information, please email Peter Macdonald at petermacdonald@hotmail.co.uk
