Where are we
About Us at St Edward’s Cheddleton
The church is a Grade II* listed building and dates back to the 13th century. It is particularly noted for its fine stained glass windows by William Morris and Edward Burne Jones and plays host to many visitors interested in their work and that of the Leek School of Embroidery.
We have a very active life in the village with at least one social event every month and our Open Gardens weekend in July attracts visitors from across the midlands.
We have close links with our village school, with children visiting church and regular assemblies held at school. Our building is used for more than just services as we play host to children’s activity mornings, evenings of music, lantern and slide shows, flower festivals, village history displays, auctions and much more. Through our deep involvement with Mothers’ Union we are able to reach out in mission to other people worldwide as well as in our own community. Members of our congregation support the local foodbank, women’s refuge and two are Street Pastors working in the nearby town of Leek. We hold a variety of meetings in the Choir House adjacent to church, as well as using it as the venue for supper meals and lunches and a coffee morning held each month.
As well as services of Holy Communion, Morning Prayer and Evensong we have services led by the congregation, and occasional invited speakers.
