The Church of England in Saddleworth

The Church of England in Saddleworth worships God revealed to us in Jesus Christ. We welcome all who seek God, regardless of race, age, gender, or sexual orientation. We affirm that the Church's mission, in obedience with Holy Scripture is to proclaim the unfailing love of God in every generation. We are a team of nine churches serving our community through prayer and friendship.

St Chad Saddleworth - Parish Centre

About us

The Parish Centre is at the junction of Lee Street and Station Road in the centre of Uppermill.

We have a Sunday service at 9:30am and a Tuesday morning service also at 9:30am.

On the first Sunday of the month we have a Children's Eucharist which is enjoyed by young and old. On the second Sunday we have a family-orientated, lay-led service. The following Sundays are Eucharists with the Sunday School joining part way through. We are a mixed-aged congregation which feels like one big family. Our worship is relaxed and inclusive and most people stay to chat afterwards.

Throughout the year we have other events such as a Good Friday workshop, a Summer Picnic and a Harvest Hoe Down.


Our Seeds group meets every Wednesday in term time from 10:00am - 11:30am at the Parish Centre. We welcome all babies and toddlers with their parents, grandparents and carers.

Among Friends

Fortnightly, on Tuesday afternoons, there is a group known as ‘Among Friends’ where retired people can relax and make new friends. Often there is a speaker or activity organised.

Café Church

Every two months a Café Church is held on a Monday afternoon where people can sing their favourite hymns, pray, and relax with friends over a cup of tea and cake.

Coffee Mornings

Every other Saturday between 10:00am and 11:30am a coffee morning is held. The first of the month is for the whole-parish ‘Away Giving’ (to a nominated charity) and the third is especially for the ‘Seeing is Believing’ project.
