Baptisms and Marriages

Home Communion for the sick and housebound

Members of the Pastoral Team, which consists of the clergy, Lay Pastoral Assistants and Readers, are able to take communion to the sick and housebound. This usually takes place on the day of the midweek Communion Service on a Wednesday. If you or anyone you know is unable to come to any of the services, either in Holy Rood, Knowlewood Knap or Hyde Place please let the vicar know, who will arrange for you to receive communion at home.

By arrangement with the Rector (email in the link, or phone 01929 462215, and see the Contacts page).


Hospital Visiting

If you know of someone in hospital who would appreciate a visit from a representative of Holy Rood Church, (normally the vicar, Judy or one of our Lay Pastoral Assistants) do please let us know. We have no way of knowing who is in hospital unless you let us know. It doesn’t matter if they are not regular churchgoers.

By arrangement with the Rector (email in the link, or phone 01929 462215, and see the Contacts page).
