Church of England Diocese of Chester Woodchurch

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.

Tree of Light Switch on Service - Sunday 2nd December at 6pm

2 Dec 2018, 6 p.m. for 45m

Church Lane, Woodchurch

Remember somebody you miss in a special way.
Christmas can be a very special time for sharing memories and thinking of those close to us. Holy Cross Tree of Light is an opportunity to remember a loved one who can't be with you at Christmas.
The Tree of Light helps us to remember family and friends who have helped light up our lives. By giving a donation of minimum £5, a light will be placed on the Tree of Light situated in the Churchyard which can be seen around part of the Parish in Woodchurch and bringing light and love around our neighbourhood.
The name of your loved one will be recorded in the Book of Remembrance located at the back of the Church.
Refreshments will be available after the service in the Parish Community Hall. There will also be an opportunity to purchase various items together with a label to write your own personal message and this can be hung inside on our Christmas Tree in Church during December.
On Saturday 15th December from 12 noon to 3pm the church will be open for you to enjoy some quiet time and reflection and collect your Angel or Star etc. to take home to be hung on your own Christmas Tree over Christmas.

Application Form attached or please phone Sue on 0151 677 5352 for more information.
