About Us

St Chad’s is a welcoming church community that seeks to love and accept everyone. We try to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, and reach out to the wider community with the love of God. The heart of our life together is prayer and worship. We would love to be able to welcome you and get to know you. The church is open every day from Monday to Saturday from about 9.00am to 5.00 pm if you would like to visit or pray, or even simply enjoy the silence.

We'd love to welcome you to share in a special service for an important life event - be it a baptism/christening, a wedding or marriage blessing, a memorial for a loved one or to seek a blessing on you or your home.  

We have an ancient past, a lively present, and a hope-filled future. The history of the church stretches all the way back to the 7th Century, when St Chad set up a community on this site, in order to preach about Jesus to the people in this area, and to baptise them.

Whether your visit to us is virtual or actual we pray you will know God's presence and blessing on your journey. Do contact us if you have any queries.

A Message from the Rector

We are a Church of England parish in the heart of Lichfield.

You will find information about who we are and what we do here on A Church Near You  – you are very welcome to come and see. Our churches – at St Chad’s itself and at Elmhurst – are places of quiet and peace where all are welcome.

Our community life is diverse, with a place for everyone. Our services and other activities are based on our main conviction – that God’s love, seen most clearly in Jesus Christ, is for each of us, and that we can enter into a loving relationship with God through the Holy Spirit. You don’t have to be important in the world’s eyes to relate to God. You don’t have to be rich, famous or clever. God welcomes each of us, as we are, and opens up new possibilities for our lives. We are all special in God’s sight, and loved.

Why not find out more by coming to one of our events or contacting us?

May you know God’s peace, love and blessing in your life
