Kids’ Christmas Party

Some of our Holy Cross kids have got together and planned a kids’ church Christmas party for the last Sunday before Christmas! If you have kids in the neighbourhood who would like to have fun, share gifts, enjoy games and Christmas treats and share in the story of Jesus, please have them come along.

We are inviting all kids to dress Christmassy and bring a small gift ($10 limit) for another child around their age if they’d like to take part in our Secret Santa.

Please register here so we know who will be joining us:

Darkness Into Light, Sun 28 Nov, 7pm

Join us for a beautiful service of music, readings and prayers to mark Advent Sunday. No need to book.

All Souls Eucharist, Tues 2 Nov, 6pm

This year we are marking the traditional feast of All Souls Day by holding a gentle contemplative Eucharist. It will be a time to remember all the suffering and losses of this strange and challenging year, to hold before God all our loved ones who have died, and together to take a step of hope.

Sunday Worship, 31 October

31 October marks our return to Sunday worship in person at Holy Cross after two months of lockdown. We will be celebrating All Saints Day at our 9am Eucharist.
