‘ALL THINGS COME FROM YOU AND OF YOUR OWN DO WE GIVE YOU’
Each person should give what they
have decided in their hearts to give,
not reluctantly or under compulsion
for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Cor 9v7
What does St Chad’s Church need, and why?
We need the support of our congregation to help us run the church.
Insiders know just how many person-hours are needed to both maintain our attractive complex and provide worship services – over 150 hours per week. In addition, it costs £610/day to run St Chad’s.
Whether you are an insider or a sympathetic outsider, we eagerly seek your help to keep St Chad’s going and to expand what we do.
What St Chad’s offers you:

- Holy Communion (traditional), Parish Communion), Parish Praise (monthly & less formal for all ages), Choral Evensong & Midweek Communion.
- Special Services
