South Ockendon – Holy Cross

I visited the Catholic church of Holy Cross in South Ockendon on 18th November 2017, to take part in a call changes competition (we came second out of four teams, yay!)

We arrived in the gloomy rain and I didn’t get a photo of the outside unfortunately.

Afterwards we had tea in the church hall.

I didn’t win anything in the raffle 😦

Waltham Abbey – the Abbey Church of the Holy Cross and St Laurence

This church is all that remains of the once large Waltham Abbey, which gave the present town of Waltham Abbey its name. It’s got a beautiful ceiling.

We visited once on the 20th February 2010, due for another visit I think.
