Welcome to the church of St Chad Hopwas in the parish of Tamworth. St Chad's church serves the communities of Hopwas and Riverside. A small, yet friendly and welcoming, church community in an idyllic and charming setting. The church was instigated by Rev William McGregor, curate in the parish of Tamworth, in 1879.
Our services are relaxed but traditional in style, with a hint of Celtic influence at times. Now that we are holding weekly services in church on Sunday at 1030, we have ceased the publication of our on-line recorded services.
St Chad Hopwas is one of four churches in the Parish of Tamworth. The other churches are St Editha in the town centre, St Francis in Leyfields and St Andrew in Kettlebrook.
The parish of Tamworth: St Editha is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Lichfield’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services."
