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.
Our Lent Course continues and we have lots of events coming up, including our High Road Evangelism on 16th March where we will be handing out Easter eggs and invitations to our Holy Week services, our Children's Craft Morning on 23rd March and our Easter/Holy Week services which start with our Palm Sunday service on 24th March at 3pm. Don't miss out on events like these by signing up for our weekly notices and monthly newsletter. Opt in by email or complete a consent form - available from the church office.
Easter Raffle: We will be holding another Easter Raffle fundraiser this year, and would be grateful for donations of Easter eggs or Easter gifts - please give these to Debbie or Pauline in the church office. Tickets on sale from Sunday 3rd March.
February on the floor: Our wonderful youth are looking to raise money to help children suffering from the Credit Crisis - this is all done through the charity 'Stand By Me' who are based in Romford. They work with families across the world providing support for children who don't have as much as we do. Our youth will be sleeping on the floor this week - and then coming together and sleeping in the church hall this Friday - they hope to raise money to buy beds and school uniforms for children. You can donate (anonymously if you like) at our St.Chad's Youth page: https://www.standby.me/appeals/ignite-youth
Volunteers needed: We still urgently need volunteers to serve tea/coffee after 9am and 10.45am services, we are always looking for people to read and do intercessions at services and we need volunteers to learn how to run the tech side for the 10.45am service. Don't hesitate to get in touch with the office if you would like to get involved.
Foodbank donations: Please consider supporting the food bank. The need is greater than ever, and we are collecting non-perishable food items, toiletries, washing powder, and baby items. Donations can be brought to the church office any weekday (except Thursday) between 10am and 12 noon, or to church.
Directory: We hope to publish the new church directory soon. To save on the cost of printing, we will be producing an email version. If you are not on email and require a printed copy, please let Pauline know.
Parking: Car parking is restricted as the builders work in the church. Parking on side streets is permissible on Sundays, or you can park in Sainsbury's car park for up to three hours.
Confirmation Service: Our Confirmation Service will be on 14th July 2024. Let us know if you or your children aged 11 or older are interested in being confirmed. Dates for confirmation classes will be announced soon.

St Chad's Verse for 2024
You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 2:5
