Invariably unity movements are a healthy and fertile environment for new ideas and initiatives to be conceived and grow. Transform Reading is an ideal incubator for new specialist initiatives which require the care and support of more than one church or organisation.

The need for help and support for the nighttime economy in Reading helped start Reading Street Pastors. This began within Transform Reading and eventually established its own charitable status. Engage Befriending was started by Transform Reading in response to Reading Borough Council asking for help in meeting the needs of elderly people who are lonely and isolated. Engage Befriending now operates from within The Mustard Tree charity.

In recent months we have supported the start of Torch Help Hub. The Help Hubs started in response to the Coronavirus Pandemic in Earley (Earley Help Hub) and Transform Reading has actively supported the establishment of Torch and has now transferred our charitable status to Torch.
