Reading Community Church (RCC) was formed in July 2005 when two existing churches known as Tilehurst Free Church and Groveland’s Christian Fellowship joined together under the leadership of Adeyinka Oyekan.
RCC is a warm and friendly church with a lively style of worship and a desire to hear and carry out the Word of God. We try to relate to people of all ages, with children’s work, youth work, young adults, and groups for the elderly, as well as various adult groups which meet at different times throughout the week. We seek to relate to and serve the local community. Alpha and Discipleship courses run on a regular basis for new and non Christians.
RCC is also one of the leading churches in the Barnabas Fellowship of Churches (BFOC), which is a group of churches across Europe and Africa. In partnership with BFOC we are actively involved with overseas mission, as well as being committed to mission in the UK.
We see ourselves as part of God’s one church in Reading, and we network with other Christians in the town and beyond to help build the Kingdom of God in any way we can. In particular we play an active role and support Reading Christian Network – whose vision is to see the transformation of communities in and around the town by the love and power of the Lord Jesus Christ.
