As part of the gradual and careful reopening of churches, St Chad's is now offering public worship again on Sundays, and some weekdays.

Sundays: 8.00am Holy Eucharist 9.00am Holy Eucharist 10.00am Holy Eucharist Sunday services are said services, with organ music and a sermon, lasting about 30 minutes.

Wednesdays: Church open from 9.00am for private prayer, then 9.30am Holy Eucharist.

Thursdays: Church open from 6.00pm for private prayer, then 6.30pm Holy Eucharist

Careful precautions, and 2 metre distancing, are observed. We are now required to wear a face covering in church, unless disability or illness prevents that, or for under-11s.

Further weekday services will follow, as we gradually re-establish our weekday patterns. You're very welcome at any of these times.

We're trying hard to stay in touch with everyone by email, social media, and telephone at this time. If you'd like to be added to our contacts database, and be kept in touch with service changes, please drop us a line.

Worship at St Chad's

The times of our regular weekly services (not during the Covid-19 crisis) can be found to the right. We often hold special services at particular times of the year and on special days in the church calendar. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and Twitter feed for details of what's coming up, or a full calendar (in normal non-virus times) on A Church Near You If you'd like to be added to our mailing list to be kept up to date with upcoming events and all the news of what's happening at St Chad's please just drop us a line.

We always do our best to make our worship accessible to all at St Chad's and you'll always receive a very warm welcome. We use service booklets which contain all the words you'll need and you should feel free to join in where you feel comfortable. We operate a loop system and have large print material available and if you're unsure of anything please just ask someone sitting near you.

At the 09.30 Sunday morning service we're supported by our choir and the organ (when times are back to normal). There are always toys, books and children's resources available and adults and children of all ages play a full part in all of our services. If you bring children along to any of our services, please relax and allow them to feel at home and to express themselves in worship.
