Welcome to the web pages of St Birinus Mission, Calcot.  This is part of the Parish of Tilehurst : St Catherine and Calcot : St Birinus.  Click here for details of the parish.

For over 50 years, St. Birinus Calcot used to be it's own parish on the western edge of Reading in Berkshire.

From October 1st 2007 a new Parish was formed - "The Parish of Tilehurst : St. Catherine and Calcot : St. Birinus".  Some parts of the former parish were combined with the adjoining parishes of St.Matthew's and St.Michael's. Click here for details

We are proud to continue to carry the St. Birinus name forward in our Mission initiatives. Our aim here is to work with other churches in the area to share and show the Good News.

The St. Birinus building is now owned and run by The Gate Church (formally known as Reading Community Church") and there are regular events held there.  The building is now known as "The Gate : Empress Road Centre"

The main church building for the new parish is now St Catherine of Siena.  Click here for details.

Cornwell Community Church offers another Anglican District Church in the Parish.

The Church is the people not the buildings- why not join us in the journey - we will be pleased to experience God's presence with you.
