“A brief visit but we will return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

We popped in here on a Sunday morning - sadly too late to attend a service in this extraordinary building. There were a few members of the congregation milling around and they seemed quite friendly. The almost circular main part of the church was surrounded on ground floor and balcony level with dozens of illuminated Christmas trees. An amazing sight!

We shall return for a longer visit on our next trip to Shrewsbury.

“Christmas Service Divine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

Attended Christmas "Carol" service on a Sunday night a few days before Christmas. Choir was wonderful, and the young girls choir was really good as well. The service was a truly "English" church experience that was very simple yet poignant. It hit the mark for the spirit of the season.

“Nothing Scrooge Like Here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

St Chads like so many churches is a great place to visit. Whether you are into stained glass, architecture, wood carvings or just looking for somewhere quiet to contemplait your thoughts.

The church yard is also interesting and includes the grave of Ebeneezer Scrooge from the film A Christmas Carol which was filmed in Shrewsbury.

“Beautiful church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

I have walked passed this church many a time but when it was featured on Songs of Praise I decided next time I was in Shrewsbury I would go inside. Yesterday I did just that and how beautiful it is. The stained glass windows alone were well worth the visit!!! The churchyard was used in the filming of A Christmas Carol and you can still see the "gravestone" of Ebenezer Scrooge.

“Unusual church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

If you are in Shrewsbury take some time to visit St Chads (across the road from the Quarry). It is a beautiful church and unusually it is circular. Lots of interesting history around the walls and the altar with the dark stained glass window behind is stunning.
