Following Christ in the footsteps of St Chad,
by living out our faith;
taking the church to the community;
and growing the church.
We are the Church of England Parish of Pattingham with Patshull, which is in Staffordshire. St Chad’s Church is at the centre of the village of Pattingham and dates from the 12th century with Victorian additions. As the only church in the parish we welcome those of any denomination or none to our services.

RIP – HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
Government guidance following the news of the death of the Duke of Edinburgh is that books of condolence should be online only as a safe way for the public to leave messages for HM the Queen and members of the Royal Family. An online book of condolence has been opened by the Church of England and can be found at https://www.churchofengland.org/remembering-his-royal-highness-prince-philip .
Anyone who wishes can submit a message there. The Vicar has already posted the following message: “Deepest condolences from the parish of Pattingham with Patshull on the death of HRH the Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Prayers will be offered for the repose of his soul and for a sense of God’s never ending love and strength for HM the Queen and all his family. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.”
You may care to use one or both of the following prayers.
God of our lives,
we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for the love he shared among us,
and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy,
through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen
be close to all who mourn,
especially The Queen and all members of the Royal Family.
May they know the hope of your promises
and the comfort of your love,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
In the Communion Service on Sunday 11th April we remembered the Duke of Edinburgh using the recommended prayers from the Church of England. That service was streamed live and can be found on the Worship on the Web page.
