LentAs we enter the season of Lent, turning our focus from Jesus’ birth at Christmas, to the culmination of his earthly ministry, his death and resurrection at Easter, we are invited to journey with him and focus on his message, communicated through his words and actions. We are challenged afresh, to understand his true identity and let his story become our story. Please join us at Crofton Parish on this journey at our Lenten services and various courses and groups highlighted below.

Lent Matters

Our Churches Together Lent course is underway and is based on the thought provoking ‘Hearing God’ by Dallas Willard, and asks such tricky questions as How do we hear God’s voice, and How can we be sure that what we think we hear is not our own subconscious? Please click here for details of all the venues and titles for the 5 weeks of the course, please do join us if you can.

Lent Lunches of soup, bread and cheese are served every Saturday in Lent, 12 noon -1.15pm in the Oak Room at Holy Rood Church centre. Proceeds to Tearfund. All are welcome. 

Messy Church

Messy Church is church with a difference - a family-friendly time of fun, games, food and craft.  It’s on the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 3.30 – 5.50pm in Holy Rood Church, so great to come along right after collecting the children from school. The next one is on Wednesday 11th March. We start with an hour of games and craft activities, then a celebration with songs and a Bible story, then a hot meal together – so no need to think what to cook for tea on Messy Church days! To find out more contact the church office, 01329 661154 or email office@croftonparish.org.uk

Little Fish Toddler Groups

Little Fish is a toddler group for parents and carers with children aged up to 3 years old. We meet at Holy Rood Church on Wednesday from 9.30am-11am and on Thursday from 10am-11.30am. There is a large selection of toys as well as a craft activity, story time and singing. The cost is £2 per family which includes refreshments for adults and children. Spaces are available now! For further details or to book a place please email littlefish@croftonparish.org.uk or ring the church office. We look forward to seeing you soon!



The Causeway congregation gathers together on the first Sunday of the month, from 6.30pm – 7.30pm, at Holy Rood Church. Drinks are available from 6pm. This congregation is open to everyone but when we meet for worship there will be special provision for adults with learning disabilities. The great thing is that we can all learn from one another and worship is enriched when abilities, traditions and ages are mixed – enriched, that is, if we approach it with the right heart.  So do join us on the first Sunday of the month.



‘You heard my cry for mercy when I called to you for help’ Psalm 31:22
