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-OPENING DETAILS
We are delighted to announce that, under certain restrictions, St Chad’s will be re-opening for public worship from Sunday, 19th July. Services will run for a maximum of 45 minutes, and will include prayers, reading, and a talk, but there will be no communion, singing, or refreshments. A maximum of 30 people, including clergy and staff members, will be allowed in the building at any one time, and entrance and exit will be through separate doors. Please note that strict social distancing must be observed, and face masks are encouraged. We should have some available.
Because of the strict rules regarding numbers, we will be running several shortened services on Sundays and places will 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.
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 look forward to seeing you on the 19th. Please do not hesitate to contact the office if you have any questions.
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.”
We have decided to close all church groups and external groups using the hall for the foreseeable future. This includes the Community Cafe, MU, MCC and all children's groups.
Pre-school will be closed until further notice. Activities will be posted on Pre-school Facebook page each week.
Pre-school is now taking applications for the September intake. Register your child now to start in September 2020. 2 year and 3/4 year funding available. We take children from 2-4 years. Sessions available: 9.15 -12.15, 12.45-3.45, 9.15 -3.45. Please email: email@example.com for more details.
