Our Toddler Group is run by Crediton Parish Church every Thursday from 2 – 3.30pm during term time and is for any parent or carer with their newborn babies to pre-schoolers. The fun takes place in the Boniface Centre, next to the church. There is no charge, although voluntary contributions are always welcome. Fun is what it is all about. We sing songs, play exciting instruments and of course enjoy the toys. The opportunity to chat to others over refreshments is always there. If you want some company or entertainment or if you just want to relax, we’d love to see you, so do come along, you’ll be sure of a welcome!

Open the Book
This national project offers primary school children ‘an opportunity to hear the major stories of the Bible, presented by teams of volunteers from local churches. It is OFSTED approved for use in collective Christian worship in school assemblies and as each volunteer is properly vetted, head teachers can have confidence in material used and volunteers.
Holy Cross has two teams of volunteers, with one or two from other churches in the area, and we now go into two local schools roughly fortnightly. We visit Hayward’s School, Crediton, on a Wednesday and Yeoford School on Thursdays. We also visit Landscore School, Crediton, once a term.
The children thoroughly enjoy our ten minute presentations as we read a story from the Lion Storyteller Bible in parts, using props and costumes where appropriate, sometimes with help from willing pupils. Each story is followed by a short reflection and brief prayer.
We much enjoy this informal teaching about the Bible in an imaginative, fun way which the children would not necessarily receive otherwise.
