Welcome to Holy Cross Church, Binstead
Welcome to this website of the Church of the Holy Cross, the parish church of Binstead on the outskirts of Ryde on the north coast of the Isle of Wight.
We are a modestly sized but active and outward-looking congregation with a church building, parts of which date back for over a thousand years. For many years we have enjoyed a close partnership with our neighbouring parish of St Peter’s in Havenstreet and, more recently, with Wootton (St Mark’s and St Edmund’s). Now, we are developing ever closer links with the churches in the Ryde area.
As you look around our website, remember the generations of Island people who have come to our church through hundreds of years to have their children baptised, to be married and to bring their loved ones to be buried, as well as to pray weekly about the things that concerned them and to offer worship to God.
