Welcome to the website of Crediton Parish Church, often known as 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. We offer a range of different worship opportunities, we are open daily for visiting and private prayer, and – not least through the adjacent Boniface Centre – we seek to serve the whole of our local community. Over 100 years ago a former Archbishop of Canterbury described Church as ‘ the only society which exists for the benefit of those who are not its members’ and that is something we take to heart. We hope you will take time to investigate all Holy Cross has to offer and enjoy the site! Even better, do come along and introduce yourselves to any of the team here – clergy and lay members.
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.
Holy Cross is the starting point for the St Boniface Pilgrim Way. Pilgrim packs are available in church and the link to the website is: St Boniface Way – Devon Pilgrim
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.
