Limited public worship has recommenced at Holy Cross Church. The pattern for Sundays during autumn 2021 is that there will be a said Mass at 8am in the Old Church and a sung Mass at 9.30am in the New Church at which Holy Communion in bread only is distributed. Please remember to wear a face covering, follow the one way signs and observe social distancing. On cold mornings wear warm clothes as the church doors remain open to ensure good ventilation.
Online worship has been discontinued for the time being, but it is hoped to be able to livestream our Sunday worship for those unable to physically attend one of the services.
Sunday 19 September is the 16th Sunday after Trinity and first of three Sundays focusing on the Created world and our responsibility for its care. The gospel reading is the Parable of the Sower. There is a said Mass at 8am in the Old Church and a Mass with hymns at 9.30am. The celebrant at both services is Revd. Ann Clarridge. The order of service for each Mass is available to download here.
The following Sunday, 26th September is the 17th Sunday after Trinity and continues the Creation theme. There will will be services in the Old Church at 8am and in the churchyard (if fine) at 9.30am. The service at 9.30am will include a blessing of the Church Grounds.
