Welcome to Crediton Parish Church

Arrangements in Response to Covid-19 Advice

Following a change in Government regulations, Revd. Matthew Tregenza is pleased to announce that the Parish Church is opening for individual private prayer on Mondays from 10am to 12noon and on Thursdays from 2pm to 4pm.  People can come and go throughout this time.  Arrangements have been made to comply with the requirements of social distancing and there will be a one-way system within the church.  There will be stewards in place and those attending will be asked to hand sanitise on entry and exit and are encouraged to wear a face covering. The church toilets will not be available.

We look forward very much to welcoming you and ask that you help us by observing government advice current at the time of your visit, most especially those who are “shielding”.

This is a welcome, first small step to the reopening of places of worship.

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).

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 weekly 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.
