The Pavilion on Reading’s Oxford Road is the new home of LifeSpring Church and includes office and conference space.

It was formally opened on Sunday, July 7 by Pastor Cesar Castellanos, who heads up the G12 Movement to which LifeSpring is a member.

Also attending were Reading West MP Alok Sharma and Cllr Marian Livingston, who is currently serving as Reading’s Mayor.

Pastor Neville Hollands, who leads LifeSpring, said: “Even though the opening was competing with Andy Murray in the Wimbledon final, we had a full house with many pastors from across Reading and the UK in attendance as well as old friends from LifeSpring Church.

“Besides a short address from Pastor Cesar, Pastor Wes Richards (Kings Church, Windsor), Mike Pusey (Guildford), and Bishop Joel Thomas (The Globe, Reading) all shared a few words.”

In the evening James Hollands organised a worship concert at The Pavilion with bands from Leeds, London, and Reading performing.

Neville added: “We had a great day together. We felt so loved and supported by the many friends who came from Reading and across the UK to celebrate with us.”
