Transform Reading brings together people in Reading churches and organisations who love Reading and want to see it go from strength to strength spiritually, economically, socially and culturally.
We work in partnership with all sectors and communities – church and faith groups, voluntary & statutory sectors, businesses – within Reading and beyond. In particular, Transform Reading provides oversight and governance for Reading Street Pastors and FIRST Stop Reading who serve the night time economy working closely with police, council and other agencies to make Reading a safer place to be and enjoy.
Our work is fuelled by a deep knowledge of the life-changing power of God’s love to transform lives and communities. We have been privileged to see many lives changed by Jesus through prayer and social action; we know that when the church comes together as one to mobilise, countless more lives are transformed for the better.
Prayer has been foundational to our existence, mission and spiritual growth as an organisation . If you’re passionate about prayer worship Christians across the town are already coming together to dream new dreams:
