Church as we know it is having to change! People are having to keep their distances from each other, households are having to self-isolate. People are worried and stressed but in the midst of all of this is our faith. The faith that whatever happens God will be there.
Here at Holy Cross we are looking at ways of being able to reach out to and serve the community of Daventry.
Below are resources for you to use along with useful contact details at the bottom of the page
The Church is now Open.
Tuesday Morning for Private prayer and a service of Morning Prayer from 10am

Summer prayer booklet
Daily prayer is a great way of connecting with God and with each other, can I suggest that at 4.00pm every day we all sit down and pray through this booklet together. It's a great way of connecting with our heavenly Father and with each other. Praying together at the same time will help us all to feel connected and will be encouragement for our faith at this difficult time.

Light a candle
During this time of isolating (or as someone said to me hibernations, as we will come out of this) you may want to light a virtual candle and pray for a loved one or a situation. This website allows you to light a virtual candle and put a message with it. The Candle burns for 48 hours and is available to see during this time.
