Following Jesus Together, Exploring Faith

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.

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

You can see more information in the September issue of the keys.
