Christ Church, Reading


The Church Building

Christ Church is a Grade II listed building of historical and architectural interest which still has an almost complete set of Victorian stained-glass windows. The church building was designed by Henry Woodyer, the distinguished architect, who was also responsible for the designs of, among others, St. Paul’s, Wokingham and Clewer Abbey, Windsor. The greater part of the building work was completed between 1861 and 1862 and the church was consecrated on August 7th, 1862 – the Feast of the Name of Jesus. Completion of the tower, spire, South aisle and vestries did not occur until 1874, the Christ Church schools, and the original vicarage (now the Abbey School Nursery) were built adjacent to the church.
