Welcome to Holy Rood!
The church is a vital part of the life of the community. We aim to be a friendly and welcoming church.
You will find at the heart of the church small groups - people meeting together for encouragement, worship, prayer, Bible Study, fun and food! Within the church they offer a special place of belonging and a means of getting involved in the life of the church. Currently we are reviewing these groups and want to make them even more friendly, relevant, and accessible.
We look forward to meeting you.
Our vision is to be a church without walls, moving people towards Christ, where we live, work and play
We want to:
● Worship God
● Be the presence of Christ in the community
● Extend God's Kingdom to all creation as a conduit of God's love
● Share the good news of what Jesus has done for us
We believe our primary activities to be:
● Worship and Prayer
● Social Action in the Community
● Christian Outreach and Evangelism
● Christian Fellowship and Encouragement
● Christian Teaching and Learning
Pastoral Care - Where to find help when you need it
Each of us has times in life when we need help. These may be a result of a bereavement, illness, or any of life's unexpected changes. It may be for a simple, one-off opportunity to talk things over; or it may be for someone to visit regularly.
Whatever your need, we want to be able to help you. In this parish, we have a team of people who have gifts in pastoral care. If you would like someone to visit you, please contact the Vicarage.
Contact: Normally this would be the Vicar. In the vacancy period when we do not have a permanent vicar, please use the Contacts page for the contact person who will find you the person or help you need.
Meet regularly to study the Bible, to pray, and to support and encourage one another.
The "Groups" page gives current details.
(See separate page here.) Meets on alternate Tuesdays at 2.00pm
Contact: Gren Irwin on 462742, or Pauline Matthews on 462128.
