Welcome to Holy Rood website – we hope that these pages will give you a sense of our church, of what’s going on and of who we are. You may just be passing through, recently arrived in Swindon, or a regular member of the parish – whatever the reason, and whoever you are, you are very welcome here.

Our aim is to be a Community of Worship, Love and Service… To be signs and bearers of God’s love for all people

‘Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God’ (Rom 15:7)

We are a large, multicultural parish, in the Wiltshire town of Swindon and within the Diocese of Clifton – with over 3,000 parishioners and 5 regular masses over the weekend. There is a lot going on – this pages lists some of our parish groups and activities.

There are many different ways in which you can help out and make this “our” parish. Any talent, or willingness that you can offer can be used – the existing volunteers will be delighted to welcome you so that more can be done and or they could take a break. Take a look at some of the groups, activities and ministries listed here and elsewhere on the website – and don’t be shy!
