NOTE: Next Messy Church: 4pm Sunday 3rd July: theme Team Work; no Messy Church in August

Messy Church is held on the first Sunday of every month at 4.00pm at St Chad's Church. Come along and join our growing congregation - this is a new and exciting form of worship. Messy Church is a fun based family service for people of all ages. Each service includes a number of craft activities, songs, a story and some prayers, all based on the theme for the day. We start with coffee, tea or juice with biscuits and finish with a shared buffet-style tea at 5.00 - 5.30pm           


Thank you to the members of Farndon Fest for their very kind donation to St Chad's Church following their successful Ball at the Sports and Social Club in December. It was very thankfully received

Farndon Rushbearing 2016

Where:   Farndon, Cheshire from outside the Memorial Hall to St Chad's Church

When:    Saturday July 9th, 2.15 pm

Every July the villagers of Farndon parade to St Chad's Church for their Rushbearing Celebrations. Before Churches had paved floors, rushes were strewn to keep the earth floors smelling sweet and it was common to make a special occasion of their annual renewal. Few such customs survive and the ones which do are mainly in North-West England.

At Farndon there is a procession involving the local schoolchildren, the Rush Bearing Queen and the Farndon and District Brass Band, and flowers and rushes are used to decorate the Church.

St Chad's Rushbearing Fair will be taking place on Saturday the 9th of July starting at 2.15 outside the Memorial Hall. Please do join in the procession with Farndon band as we crown this year's Rose Queen. Farndon School will be entertaining us with their country dancing and there will also be stalls selling locally produced produce - tombola - and children's games

Confirmations at Rushbearing

Bishop Peter will be visiting Farndon on Sunday 10th July (Rushbearing Sunday) to hold a Confirmation Service at 10.00am. If anyone would like to be Confirmed (must be over 11 years of age) then please contact Reverend David on 01829 270270 for more information
