Our Church

 

St. Chad's Church is situated at the far end of Stowe Pool from the Cathedral on the North East of the city where it sits in a slight hollow. It takes it's name from St. Chad who settled in Lichfield as bishop of the Saxon kingdom of Mercia in 669, building his oratory where St Chad's Church now stands. The original church was probably near where the Cathedral now sits. King Offa, who at one time made his seat at nearby Tamworth, secured the influence of the cathedral of St Mary and St Chad spreading as far as Shrewsbury in the west and only later was Coventry seeded it's own cathedral under the influence of Leofric in the eleventh century - better known for his wife, Lady Godiva. 

At the rear of the church is St Chad's Well, probably not in it's original position, but never-the-less a place of pilgrimage for many centuries.
