Ascent restarts @ Holy Rood Church
Sep 9 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Ascent restarts @ Holy Rood Church | United Kingdom

Ascent recommences today after it’s summer break.

‘Ascent’ is the name for the 6.30pm Sunday service at Holy Rood Church. ‘Ascent’ uses the picture of ‘going up the mountain of the Lord’ to encourage us in prayer, worship and seeking God’s presence.

In both Old and New Testaments, mountains were places of meeting God. ‘Ascent’ reflects the desire to mark out a space within the life of the parish for extended worship, prayer, ministry and the work of the Holy Spirit. It takes time to make that journey, to draw near to God, and at ‘Ascent’ we want to make that time and space.

We do hope you’re excited about the ‘Ascent’. Let’s make the journey together.

Refreshments are available at the back of the church before the service.

Family Fun Afternoon @ Holy Rood Church

Family Fun Afternoon @ Holy Rood Church

Family Fun Afternoons are an opportunity families in our community to have fun and learn together.  They are for families with children in primary school, but if your kids are a bit younger or older and you would like to come, you would be very welcome.

During these Family Fun Afternoons, we turn the entire Holy Rood site into an activity centre.  After a short welcome there are zones running across the whole site.  The zone activities change each afternoon but usually include a craft zones, a beauty zone, a baby zone for younger children, a sports zone, a games zone, a build zone and more – so there should be something for everyone’s taste!  There is also be a cafe area if you need a cup of tea or squash.  Finally, we finish with an all-together time from 3-3:30pm where families can learn and have fun together.

Do come along with your kids.  Doors open at 1:45pm and entry is £3 per family.  You don’t have too have any other involvement with Crofton Parish to come – this event is for the whole community!
