Holy Cross Church Daventry

. To be a Beacon of Love & Light to all .


“You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden.  No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5: 14-16)

At Holy Cross church we endeavour to be a light in the darkness for the people of Daventry. We want to help our neighbours in practical ways and we want to encourage others to discover the love God has for each and every one of us. Please do come and visit us, at the church, or feel free to contact us via our contact page , by  Facebook  or by telephone.

We look forward to meeting you soon.

O God the source of all light,
May we bring light to your world,
Drawing out your presence in the everyday.
As we offer you our lives,
Shape us as disciples,
That we may reveal your goodness
And reflect your light.
In Jesus name,


We have a new Toddler group run by Leanne. 

Please see the Church hall page for details.

A Prayer for Growth

God of mission, who alone brings growth to your Church,
send your Holy Spirit to give vision to our planning,
wisdom to our actions, joy to our worship,
and power to our witness.
Help our church to grow in numbers,
in spiritual commitment to you,
and in service to our local community.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.   Amen.
