The Church of the Holy Rood

We describe ourselves as 'middle of the road' welcoming of all.

Our vision is to be a church without walls.

Our aims are that: -

• We long to see God grow His church in Wool and to help increasing numbers of people to come to faith in Him.

• We want to deepen our own relationship with God based on sound preaching and biblical teaching.

• We want to reach out to all ages across the community.

• We seek to have a visible presence in the parish outside our church based activities, showing God's relevance to every aspect of our lives.


Our safeguarding policy is available on our website.

The parish of Wool, East Burton & Combe Keynes is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Salisbury’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
