About

The building of Greyfriars Church was completed in 1311 by Franciscans, followers of St Francis of Assisi who were monks, then called friars, who wore grey, hence the name Greyfriars. It is now a Grade 1 listed building, being the oldest Franciscan building still used for worship in the UK. The church was completely refurbished in 2000, which means that we meet in a light and airy building amidst the ancient walls. The Franciscans arrived in Reading in 1233 with the aim of telling people about Jesus and serving the local population, which continues to be the main aim of Greyfriars Church today.
