Woodchurch, Holy Cross
You are always welcome to our Sunday services. Every week we meet at 8am for 35-45 minute quiet service plus communion with no music and 10am for a service which has music and communion. This lasts about 75 minutes. Families are very welcome and we have activity bags for children and a small activity corner.
You don’t have to be a long-standing member of our congregation to take part in any of our services or events - we’d be happy to welcome you anytime!
Holy Cross Parish Church has served the community of Woodchurch for many many years and we love being part of the glue in this vibrant community.
We are very grateful to all who support our life in any way - with their time, talents, and their financial giving. Our fundraising efforts each year include fairs and social events and much other work by many committed people to safeguard our heritage and support the life of our church in our Parish.
Churches do not receive any government or statutory funding or regular financial support - everything is paid for by members of our congregation and others, who give regularly and faithfully to support our life, and by fees charged for other services.
Like other registered charities, we are able to claim Gift Aid refunds on donations made to us, and we seek grant funding from charities for major expenses. Our regular expenses include the upkeep of our listed church building, paying our contribution to the Diocese and central church funds (for clergy stipends and pensions and other administrative costs) as well as work done in the Parish. We seek in turn to support and to give as much to charitable causes as we are able to.
"This parish is committed to safeguarding. Our PCC have adopted the diocesan safeguarding policy (https://www.chester.anglican.org/social-responsibility/safeguarding/) and our safeguarding officer is Mrs Alison Cretney"
