Welcome to St Chad’s in Wood End, Coventry.  God has been worshipped here for over 50 years, from the time the Wood End, Henley Green and Manor House estates were created. The Grade II listed church building, designed by Sir Basil Spence, stands in a changing parish as a sign of God's unchanging love for us, whoever we are and whatever our need.

St Chad’s is the spiritual home for a loving community of people who share a faith in Jesus Christ.  St Chad's is a church where all are welcome.  We strive to be friendly, caring and accepting.

FUNDRAISING
A huge thank you to our dedicated fund raising team, who over the past 12 months have raised enough money to turn our community hall into an attractive and modern venue for all ages to enjoy.

The hall, which will soon be available to hire, includes newly refurbished toilets, contemporary lighting, ceiling and floor coverings. Most of the materials, including the lighting and flooring are sympathetic to people who suffer with restricted sound and vision and the flooring is especially sympathetic to dementia suffers and autistic children.

This has all been made possible by a large grant from WREN, a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community, biodiversity and heritage projects from funds donated by FCC Environment through the Landfill Communities Fund.

Grants have also been received from from the Big Lottery Fund and from various other local and national grant giving organisations.

They congratulated the work carried out by the supporters of St. Chad’s and how the community of Wood End is now able to celebrate and enjoy this positive regeneration project for years to come.

A huge thank you to Alistair Black and his choir from Moat House School for their superb performance which was enjoyed by local councillors and residents.

Street Orchestra of London

On Saturday 15th July St Chad’s, Wood End hosted a free concert and community lunch featuring the Street Orchestra of London, an orchestra whose mission is to take orchestral music to everyone, anywhere.

The 40 musicians are aged 18-30 and the music they play aims to captivate as wide an audience as possible with styles ranging from classical to pop. The orchestra and its tours are produced by Nonclassical, a registered charity that aims to promote contemporary classical music to a wide audience in innovative ways.

The Street Orchestra were so taken by the hospitality and story of St Chad’s and Wood End that they stopped off from their busy schedule the next day to play for us again before our morning service, and also to give a present to little Tico Atherton, a member of our junior church who is now a budding musician!
