On Tuesday 17th March 2020 and in response to the corona-virus outbreak, the Archbishops suspended all public worship across the Church of England – this is both heartbreaking and very much the right thing to do. This means that until further notice, there won’t be any services at St Chad’s. However, our prayer lives don’t stop – we will be continuing to pray daily for our community, for each other and for all those who are struggling at this time. We have also posted daily prayer cards to those who regularly attend St Chad’s and whose addresses we have – if you haven’t received any resources and would like some, please do let us know.

We are continuing to record readings, reflections and prayers each week which are posted on our facebook page and a link is included on this website too. If you know someone who doesn’t have internet access, they can listen to the audio of the recording by dialling 0121 227 7498. If you use ‘zoom’, you can also join us online for Night Prayer at 6pm every Wednesday – simply email us for the link (

If you need to chat, or would like someone to pray for you over the phone, please leave a message on the Parish Office phone – 0121 238 3168
