About Us:

Carey is an Independent Baptist Church reaching out from the heart of Reading since 1867. Our desire is to express the truth of God's word through good teaching, heartfelt worship, loving fellowship and missionary outreach. Our Sunday services are Bible-centred and combine both traditional and contemporary elements. We cater for everyone and have crèche facilities for the very young. We welcome visitors to our midweek Prayer & Bible Study meetings at the Carey Centre. Twice monthly we meet in smaller groups in homes across the town. Please be assured of a warm welcome. We look forward to meeting you.
