About Abbey Baptist Church, Reading

We are a community worshipping in the centre of Reading, in the historic Abbey Quarter.

We meet in a modern building, but the church's history goes back to 1640 when it was the first Baptist Church to be formed in Reading, in a time of great social, civil, political and religious unrest.
Times have changed, yet we are committed to the same essential task to which those early Baptists set their hands - prayer, worship, mutual care and the proclamation of the good news of Jesus Christ.
