We're delighted to be in Reading over the Easter weekend, as guests of Turning Easter Family Mission 2018. The Experience will be located opposite the main entrance to Reading train station.

The Compassion Experience is a free, family-friendly event letting you (and your family) experience the sights, smells and sounds of life for children growing up in poverty.  We strongly recommend you book a slot in advance, you're welcome to turn up at any time we're open, but by booking early you avoid any queues. Bookings must be made before 6pm the night before.

What is involved?

What is The Compassion Experience?

This free event features an interactive journey through the true stories of children living in two African countries: Uganda and Ethiopia.

In more than 2,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space, visitors will step inside homes, schools and markets — without getting on a plane. Each child's story starts in poverty but ends in hope.
