New boiler & central heating appeal

Our boiler broke down in December 2019 and was condemned! The cast iron pipework throughout the church’s central heating system was installed in 1912, so it is a major task to have it replaced.

Replacing the heating system will cost an estimated £30,000. Holy Cross, with assistance from the Edinburgh Diocese, can provide around half of that.

We need your help to raise the additional £15,000. Any contribution, no matter how small, will be very much appreciated.

Thank you – with your support work to replace the system is now complete and with your continued help our church is once again warm in body and not just in spirit!



We have a YouTube channel!

Videos produced by the Rector, including of the Eucharist, can be viewed here, helping to keep us connected to Holy Cross.

Evening Prayer on Zoom

Thursdays at 5 pm we meet online on Zoom to say Evening Prayer. All the words are provided. Email if you would like to join in.

Weekly e-news

The Rector published a weekly congregational e-newsletter for the months during and beyond lockdown to help us to keep in touch with each other and with God. It included prayer and readings for the week ahead, plus notes on hymns, poetry and other reading material to support us through challenging times. These have now stopped and details are included in the monthly magazine.
