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.
Our busy and thriving parish church is looking for someone to join our team and oversee our Parish Office. 15 hours a week, weekday mornings Mondays-Fridays, £8.50-£10 an hour. Click here for more information.
Men's Breakfast on Saturday 23 February
In the Church Hall at 7.45am. Following a cooked breakfast there will be a short talk by Capt. Kamran Irani, Chairman, Oxon, Bucks, Berks, Northants Blood Bikes, with the title Blood, Babies and Bikers.
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.
