Welcome to Crediton Parish Church

Arrangements in Response to Covid-19 Advice

As you are no doubt aware all church services are cancelled and the church will remain closed until current government restrictions are lifted.  The parish office is also closed and emails should be sent to creditonparishchurch@gmail.com whilst the current situation continues.

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  holycrosssharing@gmail.com or get in touch with Matthew (01363 894038).

We are intending to produce a weekly notice sheet to keep everyone up to date. This will be emailed directly to those on our contacts list and can also be found on the Latest News page of the website.

Online Weekly Services
We are now putting weekly services on this website


Did you know that saying the Lord’s Prayer takes roughly the same amount of time as singing ‘Happy Birthday’ twice?  Something to think about next time you wash your hands!

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 Holy Cross on Facebook page and 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!

We hope you will take time to investigate all the church has to offer and enjoy the site!
