  • Friends Quiz
    Sat, Oct 16
    Oct 16, 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
    Following the successful Zoom quiz in 2020, we are planning to hold one in St Cross Parish Hall. It is intended to be more of a social activity than an intellectual or competitive one, and we are confident that much fun will be had by all who attend.

Many of the Friends of St Cross events will be accessible. The church does have a reliable hearing loop.


If you see a wheelchair logo          next to the event posted on the web site you can assume the event is accessible. It is helpful but not essential to advise us of a wheelchair user attending.

The Church, Hundred Men’s Hall and Parish Hall are all accessible and the Hospital of St Cross has accessible toilets.


If you see an event on the programme that does not have the wheelchair logo but you would like to attend, please contact Pip Billington our Accessibility Officer who will discuss options with you. Many of our day trips go to accessible venues but we are unable to offer accessible transport.
