Crediton PCC met on March 10 and have decided that the church should reopen for public worship from Sunday 21 March. In order to manage numbers at services and to ensure social distancing, please let us know if you would like to join us by contacting Anne Jerman on 01363 772865 or email: email@example.com At the moment we will continue to have 3 services in the morning: 8.00am (Book of Common Prayer); 9.30am and 11.00am (both Common Worship). We will continue to live-stream the 9.30am each Sunday via the church Facebook page.
We want to mirror the love that God has shown us by serving our community. As part of this, we are reaching out to people at this time. While face-to-face contact is being discouraged, we don’t want people to feel alone, isolated or abandoned. Please do get in touch if you, or someone you know, want someone to call you or email you of if you need help to do something like buy food or collect a prescription. The new email set up for pastoral care is firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch with Matthew (01363 894038).
A weekly notice sheet is emailed directly to those on our contacts list and can also be found on the Latest News page of the website. You might also like to have a go at the fortnightly quiz.

The parish of Crediton centres around the Church of the Holy Cross, a church with a history of at least 1100 years that seeks through its members to draw everyone into the love of Jesus Christ.
Our regularly updated, website features much of the work of the Holy Cross. It is also intended to be a resource where you can find information about our Services & Events, the Clergy Team, and catch-up on the latest Rector’s News.
You can also research Courses & Learning, view Photographs from many areas of church life including our ever-popular Flower and Christmas Tree Festivals. You can find out about our choir and musical activities while ringing the changes with the bellringers and see Holy Cross work and life In Images. All this in addition to our comprehensive section on Crediton Parish Church’s building & history and the latest on our Holy Cross Appeals. Holy Cross takes its safeguarding responsibilities very seriously; view our Safeguarding page here.
The church is also now on Facebook. Please do “like” us and share your photographs of church services, people and events. Also do see our Church tour page.
Now you can help Crediton Parish Church through your online shopping. Find out about the Giving Machine and how you can help us!
