We are one church that meets at three sites across Finchampstead, California, and Arborfield Green. We look to welcome everyone to a place where you can explore questions about life, grow in your Christian faith and feel part of a caring family. We also aim to share God’s heart, bringing life and hope to our community. Our vision is to proclaim Jesus in our words and deeds by helping our local community.
So if you need help or just want someone to talk or have questions please reach out to us using Contact Us.
PFC St Eligius
The church is nestled in the heart of the Arborfield Green development on the edge of the cricket green. The church has an interesting history starting life as a stable for horses arriving at the original REME garrison.
PFC St James
It’s the church on top of the hill! Go past The Queen’s Oak pub and keep going upwards, you can’t miss it. Beautiful views and walks start from the church. St James was originally created by Sir Alard Banestra with the help of monks from Reading Abbey in the 1100s. The church is open every weekday from 10am to 12 noon if you want to visit.
PFC St Mary and St John
On the edge of the beautiful California Country Park in Finchampstead, it has two locations the Parish Centre and Gorse Ride Junior School (for Sunday services).
