Living a Life of Faith, Energised by Love
We're the parish church for Woodseats and we are group of people who think the message of Jesus is great news for today. In this time of Covid restrictions many services and activities that would usually take place such as Third Age meetings, toddler groups etc. are being suspended until the end of the pandemic. God, however, is unrestricted and even when we can't meet together we can still pray for, and serve, our local community.

Sunday Services Online
Mission Partnership Pre-Recorded Service
St Chad's Woodseats is part of a local Mission Partnership of Churches. Together we have a weekly online service, available from 10am on Sundays. See our Facebook Page (you do not need to have a Facebook account) for the links to all the services, or go to our Mission Partnership YouTube Page. Below is the service for Sunday 21st February 2021.
Zoom Storytelling Service
Each week we have a Bible story and a Julia Donaldson story which are linked in some way. We start at 10.30am and it lasts just under half an hour. It is aimed specifically at young families with children up to about year 5, but we have a good range of ages gathering to think about faith and God. Anyone who joins us will be able to engage with the service by listening, contributing, praying and reflecting on faith together. Contact James to find out more or to receive the weekly Zoom information.
Morning Prayer: Mondays-Thursdays
Families at Home
For younger members of our church family, we have produced some activities. Find out more by going to our Lockdown Faith at Home page. There are various fun activities to help you explore stories from the Bible together, including one based around Christmas.
“God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgement: in this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear.” 1 John 4
