Holy Cross & St Cuthbert's share joint core values and mission statement...

That our church is a place of
love and learning,
of holiness and hospitality,
of friendliness and fellowship,
of mission and outreach
and a place of generosity and goodness.

Our Core Values


Worshipping God is central to all our gatherings. We believe Prayer should be at the heart of our life as a church.


We believe in and value community. We are committed to transforming Holy Cross into a hub of positive activity for the whole community.


We are committed to growth both in numbers and in Personal Discipleship. As we grow, we will strive to accept and embrace the changes such growth may bring.

Our vision for the future is - to be:

A church for people of all ages,
an open church which welcomes everyone.
A growing church both in numbers and in personal discipleship.
A church which lies at the heart of our community.
