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.

We are very proud to have been awarded this certificate for our work with the community through MCC, Sparkles, New Beginnings, and more. Well done everyone!

Coronavirus (COVID-19): We are following the guidance from the Church of England.

Our Mid-week Service is back

At 10 am on a Wednesday, this is a spoken service, which alternates from week to week

between Holy Communion (Royal Room) and Morning Prayer (Prayer Room).

Restored Lives Course

A course for recovery from divorce and separation beginning on 4th October, 7—9.30 pm on Zoom. It will run for 6 weeks (excluding half-term). Fees are payable but discounts apply and there are bursaries for those in need.

See Iain/contact the office for info.

Changes to our Sunday Services

Following the decision by the Government to move to step 4 of the ‘Roadmap out of Lockdown’,  we are making some changes to our Sunday services.  We have conducted a risk assessment to ensure that we are doing this in the safest possible way. As of Sunday, booking will no longer be required and social distancing will be reduced to 1m inside the church. We understand that some people may feel less comfortable with a reduction in social distancing so we are reserving the side aisles for those who want to be more distant, with the centre pews for those who feel more comfortable.  Our one-way system will remain in place, hands must still be sanitised upon entry (particularly before picking up any notice sheets), and we encourage you to use the QR code or sign-in as you enter.  We also strongly encourage the use of face masks to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus. 

The good news is that congregations are now allowed to sing! 


Refreshments will continue to be served outside the church after the service giving us an opportunity to have fellowship in a safer way. Hopefully, the weather will hold!

The move to step 4 means we are being asked to take even more personal responsibility around coronavirus than when we were compelled to adhere to Government restrictions and so we will review arrangements as necessary going forward to ensure our continued safety.  At present, we will continue with the one 10.45 am service but, from October, hope to restart our 9 am service.

We will also continue live-streaming on Facebook for those who are too vulnerable/unable to come to church (you do not need a Facebook account to watch). The service will also be added to the website by Monday.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.


We look forward to seeing you in church!

God loves a cheerful giver

At St Chad’s Church, we seek to be ‘Christ, inside and out.’ Our regular members know that we need to resource that vision, and our church family contribute to our vision in many ways, one of which is financially.
