Holy Cross Oxford is a community welcoming all people of all ages to Follow Jesus, Learn and Grow.
Everyone’s invited to follow Jesus: young and old, married and single, rich and poor, every nation and race. You don’t have to have it all together, in fact, you probably won't. That's why Jesus came for you.
The first thing Jesus does with those he invites to follow him is teach them. Are you listening to what Jesus is teaching you? We learn what life is like by listening to Jesus, and we're learning as we go.
When we follow Jesus and learn from Him, we grow in faith in Him and in love for one another. He doesn't require our perfection, but He invites our participation in the work He's doing in the world around us.

Jesus is at the center of everything we do at Holy Cross Christian Preschool. Our curriculum is designed to mesh appropriate materials and equipment with the delopmental needs of children as they gain mastery over the important foundation skills that are the forerunner to reading, writing, and arithmetic.
We live out our mission by exploring our faith, experiencing God's grace, and expressing our faith in love.
Jesus says those who have been forgiven much love much. We seek to share God's love in our families, our church, and in our community. We love because He first loved us. We express our faith in love by serving our community and our church.
“All is vanity,” Solomon writes in the opening salvo of Ecclesiastes. He gives a clear indictment against everything in this world. If you hold on to anything like it’s god, it will fail you, disappoint you and ultimately destroy you. As we begin our Quest for Wisdom series, we see that true wisdom cannot be found, it must be received.
Our culture wrestles with life after death, and especially with what it would mean that Jesus was killed on the cross and rose from the grave. In 1 Corinthians 15, we see that while culture may disagree, it’s true “Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.” We can pray “Thy Will Be Done” to our Heavenly Father who has guaranteed our future through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Jesus prayed, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he said this, he breathed his last. Jesus gives himself into the hands of the father. He does not resist God’s will—He trusts God’s will. In everything, we pray with Jesus, thy will be done, as we commit our spirit to God. Our Good Friday message.
There’s something significant when a group of people share a meal together. On the night Jesus was betrayed, as He gave us The Lord’s Supper, Jesus tells us what True Joy looks like and how to find it. God gives you more. He gives you himself. Our Maundy Thursday message.
Palm Sunday was not a day of glory or triumph for Jesus. It was a day of lament, and a day for weeping. From the Gospel of Luke, “When he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it.” Why does he weep? He weeps for the people who have rejected God’s will. He weeps for lost people, but He considers His work on the cross to be joy because it reconciles us to him. He gathers each one of us individually, and all of us together. We have Him and we have each other.
