About Us

St Chad’s is a unique church because it is round.  With a capacity of 1200 people the building has the ability to make everybody feel close to the centre of the church.  At the heart of St Chad’s spirituality we believe that all are included in the body of Christ.  The round setting of the church complements this theology.  The three angels on the ceiling are a representation of the Holy Trinity, reminding us that we are always in relationship with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  The uniqueness of the round building reminds us of the importance of this theological understanding.

Our’s is a join parish will full name St Chad’s with St Mary’s and St Alkmund’s

St Mary’s

St Mary’s Church is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust and hosts a few services each year, including evensong, sung by St Chad’s choir for the feast of the Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

St Alkmund’s

In the same benefice and with the same vicar is St Alkmund’s Church right in the heart of medieval Shrewsbury, only five minutes walk from our own building.
