THE PARISH OF THE HOLY CROSS: The Church of England in Marsh Farm - Proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ through prayer, worship and social action!

If you live on Marsh Farm, or its immediate surroundings then your Parish Church is The Holy Cross, located in the middle of the estate next door to the medical centre. The Parish stretches from the northern boundary of the estate to Bramingham Road in the South; from Bramingham Wood in the east to the high rise flats in the west as well as a row of houses on the north side of Bramingahm Road which run down to the Three Horses Roundabout.

At “The Parish of The Holy Cross”, we uphold and teach the Faith of the “One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church” as given to us by Christ and handed down through the ages by the Apostles and the Saints. We are committed to the traditional Anglican expression of the Christian Faith and are part of the Diocese of St Albans under the care of The Bishop of Richborough. THE PARISH IS REGISTERED WITH FORWARD IN FAITH
