Our Church

THE BUILDING

The first church on this site was a corrugated-iron chapel, dedicated to St. Chad. It was blessed on 2nd October 1904. The first resident priest, Fr. Peter Pears, replaced it with the present church which was opened on 15th February 1931. It was consecrated on 18th February 1981 by Bishop John Brewer, Auxiliary Bishop of Shrewsbury. The old chapel continued in use as a Parish hall until the early 1980's, when the present hall was built. The church is in the North Italian Romanesque style. The altar is a copy of an 6th century carved slab of marble in the Church of Sant’Appollinare Nuovo in Ravenna.
