Holy Cross is the Church of England parish church in Ryton. We are a friendly, welcoming group who are learning together what it means to love God and love our neighbours. We would be delighted to meet you!
Our main Sunday service is at 10.30am on Sundays. This is usually a Communion service but on the 4th Sunday of the month we have a Celebration of the Word of God which is led by members of our church family.
On Sunday mornings we also have our Young Church which meets in the Church Hall. The young people and their leaders join us in church in time to share in Communion with us.
On the fourth Sunday of the month at 4pm, we have our special service for families, The Ark. This includes games and fun, Bible stories, craft activities and food. Everyone is welcome!
We also have a service at 10am on Thursdays. This is a service of Holy Communion in traditional language except for the 4th Thursday in the month when we have a lay-led Service of the Word.
We usually share in refreshments and conversation after the service.
