Next Messy Church Sunday 7th April at 4.00pm
Messy Church is held on the first Sunday of the month at 4.00pm at St Chad's Church. Come along and join our growing congregation - this is a new and exciting form of worship. Messy Church is a fun based family service for people of all ages. Each service includes a number of craft activities, songs, a story and some prayers, all based on the theme for the day. We start with coffee, tea or juice with biscuits and finish with a shared buffet-style tea at 5.00 - 5.30pm
St Chad's Sunday Club
The club meets on the 3rd and 4th Sundays of each month in the Memorial Hall Lounge. We start at 9:30am with a story and then a related craft activity for around 45 minutes before we go to church to finish off our time together. The sessions are led by fully DBS certified teachers and are suitable for age range 3-10 years. Parents/Guardians may leave their children and go to church or are very welcome to stay if they wish.

Holy week at St Chad's
Palm Sunday on 14th April marks the beginning of Holy Week at both St Chad's & St Mary's Churches. There will be special services through the week leading up to Easter Sunday.
On Palm Sunday St Chad's services are 9:30am & 6:30pm. Our 9:30 service starts off outside the Memorial Hall from where we will process into church. Then there will be a Passion reading which tells the story of Jesus's entry into Jerusalem and his last few days before his arrest and crucifixion. Parish Communion will follow. Our evening service at 6-30pm will be Holy Communion.
Wednesday at St Chad's we have Compline at 6-30pm and on Maundy Thursday we have a special Holy Communion service at 7:30pm, followed by the Stripping of the Altar and The Watch. This entails taking down of the Altar frontals and removing the trappings from the Chancel as we read aloud from the Psalms.
On Good Friday at 10am St Chad's has a special Family Service, followed by an Easter Egg Hunt in the Vicarage Garden. Between 2pm - 3pm we have The Last Hour at the Cross which consists of a selection of meditations and hymns to help us focus on the saving work of Christ.
Then on Easter Sunday we have a Family Communion at 9:30am when we will celebrate the good news of the Resurrection.
There will be Hot Cross Buns after the service and, maybe, a treat for the young people.
