The community that
worships at the Church
of the English Martyrs in
Reading strives to be open
Like any place where people
gather, the shape and make up
of the community has changed
over the years.
We now have a great diversity of
background and culture, nationality
and age represented in our congregation
which in one sense demonstrates the
inclusive nature of the Catholic Church.
We come together to worship and praise
God and to develop the ties which bind us.
Through the celebration of the Mass,
especially on Sundays, we nurture the communion
between us in order that we can continue
the mission Christ gave us:
‘to go out and bear fruit, fruit that will last‘.
We do so as a community of faith which forms part
of the Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth.
There are all kinds of groups and all sorts of activities going
on at English Martyrs which flow from our commitment to bring
the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world in which we live.
Often this involves doing very practical and down to earth things.
More information about a number of these can be found through this website. However, in the end our community is about relationships, about meeting
people and joining with them on our journey as Christians.
A website can only convey a certain amount. The best way to know what we are about is to come and see – all are welcome.
