New to All Nations?

Welcome

We know it can be a little daunting going somewhere you've never been before, so here is some information about what you can expect on a usual Sunday at All Nations...

What time do I arrive?

We have one service that starts at 10am.

Where do I park?

There is car parking available on the church premises for visitors. If the car park is full, parking is available in Coley Primary School (on Wolseley Street) or on the surrounding streets (but please pay attention to the various parking restrictions!). A map and directions of where to find us are available here.

I have a disability, what support is available?

We have good access for people who need to use a wheelchair and a conveniently located disabled toilet just off the foyer. Please contact us before you visit if you require any additional information or assistance.

What will happen when I arrive?

You will be welcomed by a member of the team, and you are free to sit wherever you like. You will probably be greeted by a number of friendly people but don't worry, no pressure will be applied to 'join up'. However if you feel that you want to make All Nations your home then there are plenty of people you can talk to.

What about the service?

The service lasts for approximately 1 hour 45 minutes. During the service there will be a time of corporate singing, as part of our worship to God. We sing a mixture of traditional hymns and contemporary songs. We place a strong emphasis on teaching. The talks are always Bible based and we seek to give application of the Bible to enable us to live more like the people God wants us to be. Sometimes there is the practice of the spiritual gifts listed in 1 Corinthians 12. Tea and coffee are served after the service, so if you want to chat to a few people this is an ideal opportunity.

What's available for children?

During the service we have activities for children of all ages; Creche (under 3's), Oasis 3-4's, Oasis (for 5-11 year olds) and iGi:Dream (11-15 year olds).

What shall I wear?

Anything! People feel comfortable wearing suits, jeans, shorts - basically come in whatever you feel comfortable in!

Do you have any activities during the week?

There are a variety of activities for different age groups during the week. Please see the week-day activites section under Church Life in the top menu. There are also different home groups scattered around Reading, so if you think you might want to join us then you can pick the nearest to you!

If you have any other questions you want to ask before you come, please feel free to contact us.
