We are a lively, friendly church, open to Christians of all traditions. The underlying churchmanship is modern catholic.

The medieval building (12C with 14C and 16C additions) was tastefully enlarged and reordered in the 1960s. You can find out more about the building on the related page (click on 'About the Church Building' on the right) and on the 'Features and Facilities' link (above).

Outside of the normal service times, the church is open for visitors from 11am to 12noon on Wednesdays, 9am to 11am on Fridays and from 9.30 to 11am on the first Saturday of the month.

For more information about the church and its organisations and activities, please click on the link to our NEW website which gives more details of our services and events in more detail.
We aim to serve the local community in many different ways. There are strong links with other local churches and with the church primary school .

                                                   A warm welcome awaits you at Holy Cross
