Worship at home

While public worship in the Church of England is suspended you can continue to be part of the worshiping community at Holy Cross by praying for each other and for all those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and by saying morning and evening prayer, and compline, with your family at home. At the times when you would usually have been in church you can take some time to follow the order of service for the Mass which will be posted on the website, along with an audio recording.

Some churches will be live streaming their Sunday services, and details of these will follow when available. There is a daily service on Radio 4LW at 9.45am each day and a range of Lent reflections on Radio 4FM, and also available on BBC Sounds.

Sunday 19 April is the 2nd Sunday of Easter. A Mass will be celebrated by Fr Graham and Revd Jacque Shalloe from their homes by videoconferencing and an audio recording of the service will be available, with the text of the service, on this website in time for you to join in with them at 9.30am.

The Church of England has also issued simple services for Morning and Night Prayer for you to use at home. You can access these by clicking on this link worship_at_home.

There is also a special form of service to use with your children at home, which you can access here Worship_at_home  with children
