Red Carpet Treatment

St Chad’s, Kirkby, with new red carpet, 17 January 2010

The slow and gradual work of improving and up-grading St Chad’s Church continued through 2009.  Towards the end of the year the new red carpet appeared as one of the most obvious changes.  Underneath the floor was levelled and at the back of the church the tiled section was fixed and relaid.

This has helped to make the church one of the most beautiful and inspirational spaces in Kirkby.  Improvements to the church grounds and entrance undertaken in previous years are now matched by the interior. If you haven’t visited recently then come along for worship on a Sunday morning at 11.00 and find out why.

Throughout the year St Chad’s is also used for a great many weddings and baptisms, family celebrations and funerals, as well as Sunday worship.  People choose the church because it is a place that stands for spiritual values, for the things of the heart like hope and love.  Members of St Chad’s hope that bringing out the beauty of the building helps to inspire and encourage those who gather in the church for these occasions.

  1. I think that the church looks beautiful but the welcome that you recieve isn’t all that great! I shall have to return to St Chad’s again because thats where I feel my heart belongs too. The website looks great Tim, you’ve done a great job. X

  2. I was confirmed there approximately 53 years ago and renewed my 10th wedding anniversary vows 29 years ago. We live in the U.S. but “maybe” next year we could renew our 40th wedding anniversary vows. What a beautiful transformation of this church!!!!

  3. I was an alter boy for many years at St Chad’s church, back when John Catlin and Keith Bistro were there, as was my brother and my sister (She was the first female alter server for some years). Although I have lost my faith, St Chad’s church will always have a special place in my heart.
