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:
