• In the continued light of the new upsurge in Coronavirus cases and our move into tier 4 the leadership of the churches in the Waltham Holy Cross benefice have decided for the church buildings to remain closed until further notice.

    We will continue with our online services. Please contact Beth Horton on beth.hrtn@gmail.com, if you wish to join our online worship.

    We will keep you update with further changes.

    We really look forward to worshiping together , even though it will be in a virtual way!

    The Rev's Jane Y, Jane B, Peter and Joyce.
