Welcome to St Chad’s Church, Shrewsbury

Love + Holiness + Beauty + Dignity

Dear Parishioner,

As is fitting, our country has entered a period of national mourning for His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. Our benefice, in connection with the national church, will mark this period with a variety of opportunities to commemorate the life of Prince Philip, pray for the repose of his soul, and ask God’s comfort and blessing on the Queen, the Royal Family, and our nation in this time of bereavement.

In recognition of this great loss, we, like many other churches throughout the country, tolled our church’s bell ninety-nine times on Saturday, 10 April,  at 12 noon. We are grateful to St. Chad’s bell ringers for making this possible.During the period of National Mourning, our benefice is offering several ways to pray and reflect, both corporately and individually.  We hope this will be of service to our benefice and to our town more widely:
