Welcome to St Chad’s Church, Shrewsbury
Love + Holiness + Beauty + Dignity
As you are aware, as a nation we are now living under new COVID restrictions. In light of the current context, the PCCs, Churchwardens, and Vicar of St. Chad’s and St. Alkmund’s have made the difficult decision to move in-person public worship outside our buildings. Recognising that communion is at the heart of our life as Christian community, beginning this Sunday our benefice will offer an outdoor service each Sunday at 10 a.m. The service’s location will alternate weekly between St. Chad’s car park and St. Alkmund’s courtyard.
As we pilot this opportunity for in-person worship, we will continue to offer online worship via Zoom, as well as resources for home-based prayer and worship.
Our new service times are below (no booking required):
9 a.m. Online Worship via Zoom (Further details: Current Contact Sheet)
10 a.m. In-person Outdoor Holy Eucharist (24th January, St Chad’s)
11 a.m.- Zoom Coffee Hour
Additionally, our church buildings continue to be open for private prayer several times a week:
Monday, 11.30am—1 p.m. St Chad’s Church
Tuesday, 11.00am—1 p.m. St Alkmund’s Church
Wednesday, 11.30am—1 p.m. St Chad’s Church
Thursday, 11.00am—1 p.m. St Alkmund’s Church
Please note: This Sunday, 24th January, our in-person outdoor service will be held at St. Chad’s Church at 10am. If attending, please do wear a face covering, particularly for the distribution of communion.
We know this is a difficult time, and we appreciate your flexibility in these challenging circumstances. Please do not hesitate to contact your churchwardens or vicar if you have any questions or concerns.
Yours in Christ,
John R. Clark, Warden, St. Alkmund’s and Elizabeth Raven, Warden, St. Alkmund’s
Peter Flint, Warden, St. Chad’s and Joanna Hepper, Warden, St. Chad’s
