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.
A traditional, quiet, reflective BCP Service, lasts about 1 hour, includes a short sermon. No children's work provided at this service.
A lively contemporary service, family orientated, relaxed, and modern in feel. Children/young people are well catered for by our committed and fun-loving kids teams.
A spoken service, which alternates from week to week between Holy Communion (Royal Room) and Morning Prayer (Prayer Room).
Please note that there is no Morning Prayer at present but only Holy Communion on the first and third Wednesday of the month.
Congratulations to Christine, who won an award for her work with MCC and the elderly in the community at the ‘London Faith and Belief Community Awards’.
Shoebox packing is Saturday 2nd December. All are welcome to come along and help pack our shoeboxes for children in Eastern Europe. We start at 10am and a simple lunch and refreshments will be provided. We'd also be grateful for help on Friday 1st from 4pm setting up for Shoebox Saturday.
Sunday 3rd December is our Shoebox and Toy Service at 10.45am to bless our shoeboxes and toys for local children. Toys should be new and unwrapped please and we will place them under the tree during the service. Please remember the teenagers as well as the younger children.

Calling all knitters—There is still time to knit a few more bells for this year’s Christmas project —’Ring Out the Good News’! These will be going out around the town just before Christmas, date tbc. Patterns and wool are available at the back of the church or ask the church office to email a pattern to you.
Pew keepsakes: If you would like a keepsake made from the pews that have been removed from the church, we have some wonderful wooden items that have been made for us and that will be sold to raise money for the church.
