“The Church in Reading ……. on the Streets of Reading”

FAITH is a registered charity supported and run by members of Congregations across and outside of Reading.

We have a small part-time paid staff, but rely on dedicated and committed volunteers.

We are non-denominational, committed to expressing the love and compassion of Christ

to anyone in need, irrespective of colour, creed or ethnicity.

With fairly limited resources FAITH has always tried to focus its activities where the need is the greatest.

We are best known for our
Food Handouts in the evenings and our
Tea Bar Sunday afternoon
aimed primarily at rough sleepers and those in desperate need.

However, over the years we have added a number of other activities …….

We now run Reading’s Food Bank – ReadiFood

We have a small supported housing project – Stepping Stones – aimed at men who have been through Rehab but need ongoing support in recovery

We also co-ordinate the Reading Churches Winter Night Shelter – A Bed for the Night

Ultimately in all we do it is our prayer that men and women come to experience the love of God and the assurance of eternal salvation that is to be found only in Jesus Christ


The poor you will always have with you.  Matthew 26:11 (NIV)
