• photo of St Chad's church buildingWelcome to the website of St Chad's Church, Ladybarn in South Manchester, part of the Church of England Diocese of Manchester.
    Daily prayers are being live-streamed on St Chad's Facebook page and uploaded to the You Tube channelPlease read this from the Rector  with more about about the unprecedented suspension of public worship.  

    Our main Sunday service is the Parish Eucharist at 10.00am, using the contemporary language liturgy from  Common Worship.  The service is sung with hymns, plus incense on major festivals. 

    There is Fair Trade tea, coffee and biscuits in the Community Hall after the service.

    Our children's corrner provides space and craft activities within the main body of the church allowing parents and carers to still participate in the service.

  • Safeguarding

    We aim to create safe environments, where children and young people are nurtured and protected; and where all people, and especially those who may be vulnerable for any reason, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey with encouragement and in safety. We follow the national legal and procedural framework for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults, and Church of England policy and practice.

    If you have a concern and need to make contact about a safeguarding issue, please contact one of the Safeguarding Officers: Judy Fletcher (07795 217 637) or Leslie Bell
