St Mary's Avenue

Purley on Thames

Reading, RG8 8BJ


St Mary's is a working Church that is keen to promote other community uses for the building.  The Village Concerts events hosted there are not specific Church events but use of the venue for concerts generates an income for the Church.


For Village Concerts events there will be a licenced cash only bar.   St Mary's is wheelchair friendly with easy access.  If wheelchair users email us beforehand via the contact page we can reserve a space within the concert venue and ensure an excellent view of proceedings.  We've noticed at other venues wheelchair users sometimes get pushed away to the side or back of the venue and we'd like to avoid this if possible.  Also we'll ensure a parking space is reserved near the entrance if required and we know beforehand.


Purley on Thames is on the outskirts of Reading and taxis are available from Reading railway station.  Tilehurst railway station is about one mile away from St Mary's.  There is parking outside the Church.
