Living a Life of Faith, Energised by Love
We're the parish church for Woodseats and we are a group of people who think the message of Jesus is great news for today.
This home page is regularly updated, so read on to find out what is happening. Do like our Facebook Page, follow us on Twitter, or sign up to our mailing list to receive updates about what is happening.
This Easter we’d love to welcome you to St Chad’s Church as we mark the death of Jesus on the cross and celebrate his resurrection.
Take a look at some of the events and services we have lined up and join us to celebrate the wonder of new life in Jesus.
Our Regular Sunday Services are:
9am Holy Communion: Our weekly service of Holy Communion has robed clergy, hymns on the organ and a small choir.
11am Worship Service: Our 11am service is a more informal time where we pray, listen to the Bible and hear a talk, and praise God led by our band. Children's groups run on most Sundays.
On the third Sunday of the month our PitchUp@11 service takes place. It’s for anyone and everyone, all stages and ages, however you’re feeling - with time to pause, chat, create, get busy, and listen out for God.
Our 11am service is live-streamed on our Facebook page (you can also see it at the bottom of this page). We hope that seeing it on your screen will encourage you to join us in person!
Morning Prayer: Mondays and Wednesdays at 9am
Join us for Morning Prayer in the church building at 9am for about half an hour. There are a mixture of prepared and unprepared prayers, and a conversation surrounding the Bible passages set for the day. If you would like to take part in a service of morning prayer but are unable to come to St Chads, you can find the words and a recording through the national Church of England website here.
Rev Toby Hole has now moved on to take up the post of Director of Mission and Ministry in the Diocese of Sheffield. Toby was vicar at St Chad's for 12 years until September 2022.
We are now in the process of finding a new oversight minister for St Chad's who will also be in charge of St Paul's Church in Norton Lees.
