As part of our community work we have been working in partnership with St Chad’s church. It is over 13 centuries since a monk called Chad was sent to our area to become its spiritual leader, or bishop. Chad established a religious community, and eventually the church and well were built on the site.
Chad was one of many important early leaders in the Christian church of our lands. Another was St Werburgh, who led a community and eventually became associated with Chester. In 2012 a 92-mile waymarked footpath was opened to link the two great cathedral cities of Lichfield and Chester. It is called the Two Saints Way, and this year the High Sherriff of Staffordshire will complete her journey along the walk by arriving in Lichfield on Sunday, 1st March - with celebrations at the Cathedral and St Chad’s to which all are welcome.
To celebrate this important milestone in its history the Church of St Chads decided it wanted a new logo to use on its website and publications. All the students in Year 7 were invited to apply, having been taught about the life and works of St Chad. Reverend Rod Clark came to present the prizes in assembly to the winner and runner up. Maija Cresswell won the competition. Her logo showed a picture of the St Chad’s Cross with an outline of the church building imposed upon it and contained the strap line “St Chad’s Church Lichfield – the meeting place of God and his people for 14
The second prize went to Zoe McKiernan whose emblem also showed the church and cross.
All the students said they had enjoyed the competition, learning about the life of St Chad and having the opportunity to design a logo that will be used for many years to come. As the church is so near to us, we will have a constant reminder of the link between school and church.
Well done to everyone who took part.
