 The Youth Service
A Youth Service is held on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 6.30pm.
The service is short, lasting 30 to 45 minutes and is run in a very relaxed atmosphere and is for the younger members of the church.

We welcome teenagers who would like to participate in the musical or drama content of the service. If you play a musical instrument and would like to join up with others and enjoy the satisfaction of playing in a small band, why not come along and join in the fun. All are welcome.

On Sunday 18th February 2007, the Youth Service drew a particularly large congregation. The service was a great success due to the excellent performances, readings and prayers in particular by the singing group shown below.

 Christingle Service at St Chad's

This special service, which takes place just before Christmas is an ancient Moravian custom (first held on Christmas Day in 1747) which celebrates the coming of Christmas - families gather together at their local Church and the children are given Christingles.

The Christingle...
The orange represents the World and God's creation - fruits and sweets on the four cocktail sticks remind us of the seasons of the Earth - the red ribbon represents the Blood of Christ and God's love for us in the death and resurrection of Jesus - and the candle represents God's love in sending Jesus "the light of the World" to be with us always.

The Children's Society introduced the Christingle into the Church of England in 1968.

Christingle Service 24th December 2008

 Easter Garden

The Easter Garden is built in St Chad's Church on Good Friday by the children of Pattingham.

They constructed the Tomb, stone by stone and brought flowers in the colours of red, purple white and blue, the colours of mourning.

At the side of the Tomb is the herb, rosemary for Remembrance. On the Green Hill are three crosses, one for Jesus and two for the thieves.

On Easter Day, the stone is rolled away from the Tomb and bright yellow flowers are placed in the Garden - a sign of celebration.

A white Easter lily stands behind the green hill to symbolise the risen Lord.

The Lord is risen...Alleluia
