As a first step towards being able to resume public worship, we are opening Holy Cross Church on Wednesday afternoons for anyone who wishes to come and spend some in quiet prayer. We are complying with current public health guidance, including spatial distancing and the use of hand sanitiser. While all are welcome, if you are in a clinically extremely vulnerable group the advice is still to stay at home as much as possible. Similarly, if you are exhibiting any symptoms known to be associated with COVID19, please self-isolate at home and do not come to church.
