Church opens its doors for the Reading Festival weekend

Caversham Baptist Church will once again be welcoming festival fans with food and facilities

Reading festival1Last year the church welcomed more than 500 visitors and provided clean toilets, free wi-fi, mobile, tablet and laptop charging, and free meals throughout the weekend.

Organiser Sue Allum hopes that the people who come through the door will be able to freshen up, get a good cup of tea or meal and ensure they are able to keep in contact with their home. She added the church aims to provide quiet place where people can get away from it all for a while.

The Reading Festival takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend at Little John's Farm on Richfield Avenue in central Reading, near the Caversham Bridge. The site's capacity is more than 85,000, and this year's headliners include Mumford and Sons, the Libertines and MEtallica.

A café style service will be held on Sunday at 10.30am with guest speaker Sally Hunter who will talk about why she is a Christian and the difference God has made to her life.

There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions.  

Festival-goers are more than welcome to come along to the café service or just sit in the lounge area while the service is on.
