We love Sundays at Festival Church Chester! We open at 10:00 with free tea and coffee, and our service starts at 10:30. Parents of primary-school aged children can sign their kids in before the service, and the children leave part way through the service for Festival Kids.

For parents with babies or toddlers, we have a creche with a live feed from the service - so you won't miss a thing.

After the service, there’s more free tea and coffee available and we also open our coffee shop, Festival Coffee, for specially crafted barista coffee, speciality tea and luxury hot chocolates available to buy. If it’s your first time with us, you can pick up a voucher to get one of our barista-made drinks for free!

We have parking spaces available at the front of our building for visitors, and we can’t wait to meet you.

Other parking options available are the Park and Ride (there are 4 around Chester), on-street parking on City Road, or the nearby NCP car park.

Our Story

Festival Church first began life as Chester Pentecostal Church. It all started when Clifford and Eunice Beasley held a church service in their living room in Kings Crescent East, Great Boughton, on Sunday 18th January 1976.

Three months later, the Penri Welsh Chapel in Gorse Stacks agreed to allow the new fellowship to use their premises on Sunday afternoons – this continued for a period of 9 months.

In January 1977, the church rented accommodation alongside the Fountains Roundabout and remained there until 1986 when it moved to its present premises in Queen Street (formerly a Welsh Methodist Chapel) and became known as the Queen Street Christian Centre.

In 2015, we marked the next chapter of our story by changing our name to Festival Church.
