Christ, Inside and Out
Saint Chad's, Chadwell Heath
Welcome! We are a vibrant church in East London, growing in Christ for Christ.
St. Chad's is a multi-ethnic, Bible-centred, community-focused church, where we seek to pray, worship, make friends, and have fun.
Coronavirus (COVID-19): We are following the guidance from the Church of England.
Please watch this video update from our vicar, Martin.
CHURCH RE-OPENED DETAILS
St Chad’s has re-opened for public worship at 10 am on Sundays.
If you didn't attend last week you will need to complete the online booking form or call the office to book your place. If you did attend last week, please do confirm if you will be coming again this week or not, so that we have accurate numbers.
Midweek Holy Communion will also take place on the first and third Wednesday of the month.
Call the office to book.
Services run for a maximum of 45 minutes and include prayers, reading, and a talk, but there will be no communion, singing, or refreshments. Please note that strict social distancing must be observed, and face masks must be worn. We should have some available.
Because of the strict rules regarding numbers, places need to be booked. Please click here to book a place for your household. It is a very easy form to fill in, but if you have any problems you can always phone and book via the office.
Please see the COVID-19 Test and Trace Privacy Notice.
We hope that even though the services will be restricted (no singing, no communion at present, no refreshments), that this will meet the needs of those of you who just want to get back to church
We understand that this may seem a very strange way to come to church, but we must follow government legislation. As such, anyone turning up at church who has not booked a place will be asked to wait outside until 5 minutes after the service has started, and if numbers permit, will then be admitted.
We will continue to provide our weekly service through our website and Facebook page. Martin will also continue his blogs and updates. Our Saturday online Junior Church service will also continue but it would help if you could let us know if you would like to bring your children to the Sunday services.
We are all looking forward to the time when we are allowed to worship together again, but until then we will provide our services by any means permitted, always working within the Lockdown Law and with people’s welfare, health and safety our main concern.
We have seen a huge number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
The "rule of six" dictates that social gatherings of more than six people are not permitted. This includes the Community Cafe, MU, MCC, and all children's groups.
Pre-school IS OPEN, please email: email@example.com for more details.
Please see below our latest Sunday service video. All videos are available on the Services page.
