HOLY CROSS DAY

This Sunday the 16th of September we celebrate our patronal festival, Holy Cross Day. 

For this week all of the congregations of the Parish will come together to celebrate our special day. As a result there will be no 8:00 am Service this week and the usual 10am service will start at 10:30 am instead. 
You are very welcome to join us in our service of celebration, which will be followed by a sumptuous lunch at the Church.

Our Worship Styles
At Holy Cross we offer a range of worship styles suitable to the diverse needs of the community. 

Our Sunday 8am service follows a contemporary Anglican liturgy in an intimate and relaxed setting. In the place of a sermon, we together explore scripture, sharing our thoughts and reflections.

Our Sunday 10am service follows a contemporary Anglican sung liturgy in a more formal setting. Music is an important element of this service, with parts of the liturgy sung and a blend of traditional and modern hymns that support the scriptural message.

Our 2pm Sunday service follows the Anglican liturgy spoken and sung in the South Sudanese Dinka language. Music and dance are a feature of our 2pm service, creating a high energy worship atmosphere.

Our weekday and Saturday fellowship groups offer a diverse range of opportunities to worship and understand our faith. Through bible study, reflection, gathering to share a meal and gathering in fellowship with each other, we offer welcome to all who join us to explore more about our faith and Christ's presence in our lives and the world.

AMIP Worship Partnership

  
Holy Cross has partnered with St Columba College to offer families a comfortable, welcoming, interactive worship opportunity where all ages learn and experience God together. 
 
Family services held every Sunday, gathering over refreshments in the meeting room adjacent to the College Gymnasium from 11.00 am. (Look for the signs on President Avenue, Andrews Farm)
 
Parents, grandparents, babies, toddlers, kids, and teens are all very warmly invited to come along to a worship experience that we are hoping will be especially family friendly. Don't come expecting to sit still. Come along ready to join in with songs, activities, games and fun!
 
 We hope to see you there!
