Project History

St Chad's has hosted many SWYM trainee youth workers over the years.

Structure & Vision

Our vision for this role is for it to be a formative experience for the student, learning about themselves and ministering in a wide range of settings in the name of Jesus. In some places this will involve overtly speaking about Jesus, whilst in others it will be by demonstrating his servant heart.


Patchway is a town on the northernmost fringe of Bristol. We are bounded by the M5, the Mall at Cribbs Causeway and the busy A38 dual carriageway. In addition to the 9500 residents, many of whom have lived locally for a long time, there are 2,200 new dwellings being built on Charlton Hayes with another 5,700 being planned across what was once Filton Airfield.

Current Ministry

The Vicar, Revd Howard Jameson, has been in post for six years. Currently we support two Curates in training and have a Community Worker for the new housing. We also host a cohort of theology students from Trinity College who have St Chad's as their learning context.
