  • Woodley Volunteer Centre (currently suspended)

An office in the Church buildings is manned by a member of the Woodley Volunteer Centre to coordinate the requests of local people with varying needs (such as lifts to hospital), with offers of help from local volunteers. The Centre can be contacted on 0118-9698849. An answering machine operates when the office is unmanned.

    Football Team

    From autumn 2012 the West Reading Churches Football Team has become affiliated to Christ Church. Despite their name they play in Woodley in the Thames Valley Church Football League and largely live to the east of Reading, including some former members of our BB.


    We have three halls, the worship centre itself, and a meeting room (the Stenner Lounge) available for private hire at competitive rates. Details of our rooms.

    They are available for a variety of uses, but note that smoking and alcohol are not allowed on the premesis. Below is a list of some of our regular bookings and others that have used us in the past.
