|IWelcome to St Chad's Church, Pattingham...
is a month that sometimes has a gentle sadness in my mind, as
the warmth of summer begins to fade and the chill of Autumn starts
to be more noticeable - although sometimes we get really wonderful
weather in late September! And there is also the excitement and
anticipation from new starts - new crops being sown as the old
ones are harvested; new terms at school; new events being planned

|John Daimond's 5 mile
On Tuesday 9th September 2014, Revd. John Daimond completed a
planned 5 mile walk in Attingham Park grounds. John's goal was
to complete the walk in order to raise sponsorship funds for
Cancer Research UK, to say 'thank you' for the tremendous support
they have given him during his illness. more>>

glass entrance door is coming soon...
The work to install the South Entrance glass doors will commence
mid to late September week commencing 22nd September.
The work will be completed in 5 working days commencing from
a Monday. For that time the South Entrance will be closed to
the Parish and we will use the North Entrance. Signs will be
in place to direct people from the Main Path around the Church
to the North Entrance and through that immediate entrance area
into the main Church. The majority of the cost for this new door
has been financed from part of the proceeds made at the two Scarecrow
Festivals held in 2011 and 2013.
six week course will run at St Chad's during Autumn. It is a

can be lived out each day. For more details, please speak to
Maureen, Paul or Ken.

to Ness Tobin...
I am Ness Tobin and am joining the parish of Pattingham as, I
guess, a trainee vicar! I am training for the ministry at the
Queens Foundation, Birmingham, and am on placement at St. Chads
church, with Maureen Hobbs as my supervisor.
I am really excited about it, and know Pattingham a bit through
the Drama group, of which I am a member.The last time I was up
front was as a calendar girl-this role will be a bit different!
This year's Race, the 25th, will be on
12th October 2014

the collapse of several large branches from a tree in the Churchyard,
