Earley St Peter's Church
Welcome to the Earley St Peter’s website. St Peter’s is the original Church of England parish in Earley on the eastern side of Reading.
We will be pleased to welcome you at any of our services or other events. On Sundays we normally offer services at 8am, 10am and 6.30pm and full details of these and weekday services are given on the Services page.
Some items of interest are below but you will find much more about us in these pages which we hope will be of interest and whet your appetite to join us in worship and other fellowship activities.
We're working alongside Anderson Baptist Church and Park URC to put on a 'light party' for primary aged children. The party will be an evening of fun, food, craft and games as we celebrate the best light that there is. It takes place on 31st October at Park URC at 4-6pm

Sunday Evening Worship
At a time when fewer churches offer a service every Sunday evening, we are blessed at St Peter’s to have a regular and enthusiastic congregation at our 6.30pm services. We have been reflecting with them on the pattern of worship on Sunday evenings and in October, November, and January (December of course is different with special Advent and Christmas services) we will test the following general pattern of Sunday evening 6.30pm services:
First Sunday: Evening Worship
Second Sunday: Choral Evensong
(where the choir sings most of the service)
Third Sunday: Holy Communion
Fourth Sunday: Evensong
(led by the choir, but with more congregational singing)
Fifth Sunday: Compline
