Reading Area

The Diocese of Oxford is divided into four smaller ‘episcopal Areas’, each overseen by their own Area Bishop.

The Reading Episcopal Area extends from west Berkshire along the M4 corridor to Windsor.

It includes very rural areas and large centres of population such as Reading and Bracknell and with a population of 800,000 is larger than many dioceses in the Church of England.

The deaneries of the Reading Episcopal Area are: Bracknell, Bradfield, Maidenhead & Windsor, Newbury, Reading and Sonning.
