We are called to be a loving, welcoming, worshipping Christian community working together to share the love of Christ with everyone in our parish and beyond.

We are delighted to announce that a new Vicar has been appointed to our parish. She is the Rev Josephine Williams who comes to us from the town centre parish in Wolverhampton.

The Church of St Mark is an open and welcoming congregation, worshipping and ministering in the Battle area. It is situated on Cranbury Road, near Battle Hospital, a mile to the west of Reading town centre (no. 16, 17 and 33 buses stop nearby). We are part of  the united benefice of St Mark and All Saints Reading.

The church was first founded in 1889 as a place of mission and outreach, and this is very much our work today. We gather to celebrate a parish eucharist at 9.15am on Sunday mornings in our simple and beautiful Edwardian church. Everybody is welcome in our open and inclusive congregation. 

Our worship uses a relaxed and friendly, modern catholic style. Coffee and chat afterwards is an important social occasion both at St Mark and at All Saints, (whose main service is at 10.45am). We hope that young and old will find that our congregations are friendly and inclusive.

If you are interested in booking our Church hall, please contact us using the following email address: If you want any further information, please use the email link ("Contact us" tab above) to send a message to our office.
