Church of England Diocese of Oxford The Grey Friars, Reading

About Us

Greyfriars and New Hope have a heritage of proclaiming the Gospel and serving the poor and disadvantaged. The poor includes those living on the streets and those in poverty, but also the poor in spirit – those who hide behind the comforts of financial security, who need the Good News of Jesus. Our call is to build on that heritage, to step into the purpose God has for us now.

The vision for Greyfriars and New Hope is to see Reading changed by the love and power of Jesus – including those in business, those studying at University and schools, the lonely, the poor and the needy. We are here to take the message of Jesus out to Reading, so that lives are changed and those who hear the Gospel come to know and put their trust in Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
