The Revd Jamie Taylor, the Vicar, said: “There has been a church here for well over 1,000 years and the present building is much loved. However we are about much more than a beautiful building and recognise that the church is actually about people. This hall and office will not only enable us to better serve our regular congregation, but also give us the space to reach out to the communities of Charvil, Sonning, and Sonning Eye in new and exciting ways.”
