Holy Cross

Go to COVID-19 update

Holy Cross Church is about “creating opportunities for everyone to experience God's love”.

We are a church that seeks: 
• To be alive and well in the village  
• To grow the faith of all.

We've been growing in partnership (with our local C of E primary school), in number (our services have been growing) and influence (we've recently set up Friends of Holy Cross to help safeguard our beautiful village church for future generations).

We can welcome you to a variety of monthly Sunday morning worships and our young families come to the Family Service as well as Messy Church which is thriving. Visit the Calendar for more about services (and select Holy Cross Ashton Keynes to only see those specific services).

We have excellent links with Ashton Keynes C of E primary school through our fortnightly Open the Book assemblies, through school taking part in many of our “big services” and coming to church each term for a service, and through school-church projects such as a link with Kabale Prep school in Uganda.

Holy Cross is aware of the wider world and supports Swindon Food Bank and Christian Aid. and our annual Lent Lunches held in homes in the village support many other charities.

We don't only focus on Sundays. Small groups include Big Questions for Seniors, the Prayer Lunch Group and occasional Alpha courses. We also organise a biannual visit to Lee Abbey and our Beer and Carols in the White Hart has become an annual event.

We know that belonging and believing are important in today's world. It doesn't matter whether you are 8 months or  88 years old,  we welcome  you and hope that with us all, you will grow to know Christ and make him known in the world.
