Scripture Study continues during lockdown

We are managing to continue studying the Scriptures together online, even though we cannot meet up at Holy Cross!

We meet on Tuesdays, 7.45-8.45pm, through the online platform Crowdcast.

Acts of the Apostles: The Birth of the Church


Tuesday 2nd June, 7.45pm
Acts 3 – Peter heals and preaches –—peter-heals-and 

In our Scripture study sessions from Holy Cross Priory, we now turn during Eastertide to the Acts of the Apostles, looking at how the Church was formed around the Risen Christ and sent out after his Ascension and the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. How are we sent today in that same Spirit to our 21st-century society?

There will be input from Fr Matthew with time for discussion and questions.

Please have a Bible to hand, though you can also follow just by listening. If you make sure your microphone and camera are working, you’ll be able to make your own contributions. It will also be possible to ask questions, respond to polls, and chat in the sidebar.

The session will last one hour.

You can also subscribe to Fr Matthew’s channel on Crowdcast for updates about future sessions.

Hope you can join us!

Christians in the Holy Land – 4 March, 7.15pm

Christians in the Holy Land are struggling and face many threats. Here’s an article that gives some background:

We are delighted to welcome Professor Robin Graham-Brown to speak to us on this topic. As well as having a career in medicine, teaching, research and hospital management, Professor Graham-Brown is a member of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, a Catholic order that strives to help Christians in the Holy Land. He will speak from that experience about the situation for Christians in the country where Jesus Christ lived, died and rose again. And what can we do to help them?

A light soup dinner will be served after the talk and there will be time for questions and discussion.

Wednesday 4 March
