Church House is a parish property in the centre of Caversham (57-59 Church Street). The building is divided into various sections:

  • A first floor hall available for hire to members of the public
  • Two commercial units let on long term commercial leases
  • A flat let on a short-term private lease
  • The Church House Admin Office and the Good Neighbours office

Church House was given to the Parish in 1943 by the Haslam sisters, who stipulated the kind of purposes for which the building should be used. These can be summed up as Christian worship and the furtherance of Christ’s word in Caversham.

The building generally produces a healthy surplus, a proportion of which is made available to the Parish for use in accordance with these wishes. (This process is managed by the PCC Grants Team.) The rest is used by the Properties Committee to maintain and improve the building and the facilities it offers.
