Impact Reading

Impact Reading is a network of Christian social action organisations in Reading and surrounding areas.

Impact Reading seeks to network together for:

  • Envisioning – seeing the bigger picture of what God is doing beyond our own individual organisations.
  • Coordination – working together in practical partnerships, keeping each other informed.
  • Facilitation – enabling and empowering each other through our pooled expertise and knowledge
  • Promotion – making known the good work that is going on in the name of Jesus
  • Influencing – engaging with policy-makers and funders to have a Christian voice in key areas.
  • Supporting – providing a peer support network for those engaged in social action

How does Impact Reading work?

Impact Reading aims to be inclusive of all those who are: Christian in ethos, engaged in social action, and involved in an identifiable organisation.

Impact Reading itself is not a separate organisation, but an umbrella for all Christian social action organisations in our area.

Relationship to Churches

Impact Reading seeks to relate to all the churches of Reading through:

  • Facilitating church members in accessing information and services for themselves and others
  • Keeping the churches informed about issues in government and community through our shared networks
  • Publicising a range of opportunities for Christian service
