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.
Bank Holiday closing: No groups meeting 29th May and no Sunshine Cafe 30th May
Gala Extravaganza: 31st May. To celebrate our older folk - Over 65's only. 11.30 for noon. 3-course meal and entertainment. £5 (see Christine to get your ticket). Dress - smart. SOLD OUT
Confirmation Service postponed: Our Confirmation Service is being postponed until the new year, due to the delay in the refurbishment of the church. Please keep watching the notices and emails for the new date but do let us know if you or your children aged 11 or older are interested in being confirmed so that we can keep in touch.
Father's Day Cake Sales: We would really appreciate home-baked cakes for the Father's Day cake sales.
Christmas blessings: The focus of this year's campaign is bells—’Ringing in the Good News!' Patterns and wool are available at the back of the church or ask the church office to email a pattern to you.
Shoeboxes: Please continue to save your shoeboxes for our Shoebox campaign. During June, we are collecting teddies and toys, such as little dolls, cars, balls, puzzles, or anything small that will fit in a shoebox. There is a collection basket at the back of church. Also, in between knitting bells, we would be grateful for hats for our shoeboxes, especially larger hats for the 12 + group.
Food bank: the food bank needs donations now more than ever! If you wish to donate, you can bring items to the church office any weekday except Thursday between 10am and 12 noon or to church.
Sunday services and creche: now that the refurbishment is underway, Sunday services and creche are in the hall.
St Chad's Preschool - bank cover needed: Our preschool is currently looking for a level 3 qualified staff member - see the attached advert for more information. They are also looking for a lunchtime assistant.
Volunteers needed: We are always looking for volunteers to take part in Sunday Services; reading, intercessions and serving refreshments after church. If you're available during the week, there are always jobs to be done and we would love your help! We are also looking for volunteers to help run craft mornings for children one Saturday a month. We ran them before lockdown and they were very popular with both church children and the community. If you are interested, please speak to Belinda.

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.
