CTM Parish

Nestling along the banks of the River Thames are the three churches of the parish of Caversham Thameside and Mapledurham.

Three churches in one parish

Each of our churches has their own distinct feel:

St John the Baptist Church, on Gosbrook Road, is a neighbourhood church with a focus on ‘community ministry’, seeking to grow by engaging with people who live in the area.

St Peter’s Church, just above Caversham Court, is a gathered church with a focus on liturgy and learning seeking to grow by welcoming people through the church doors.

St Margaret’s Mapledurham, at the heart of the beautiful village of Mapledurham, is a pilgrim church with a focus on companionship, seeking to grow by embracing others on the journey of faith.

Together we proclaim that God’s love is absolute, inclusive and available to all.
