What a Glorious Day!! Confirmation Service with Bishop Manto– March 27, 2022

Seven confirmed at Amelia Sanctuary and Chesterfield Heights: Princess Bey, Cyndi Ashman, Julia Dawson, Susan Parker, Janice Shelby, Beverly Midkiff, Carol Krepp

We had a glorious day worshiping God with our presiding bishop, The Right Reverend Peter Manto! We thank God for blessing us with seven new parishioners and a lovely time of fellowship after the confirmation service.

All Saints Day–November 2021

All glory goes to our incredible God! On All Saints Day, we celebrated the founding anniversary of our church, the first anniversary in the Amelia sanctuary, and the completed purchase of our building.

Front Porch Ministry–October 2021

The Ladies of Holy Cross formed a Prayer Shawl and Blanket Ministry in which we knit and crochet shawls and blankets for the Amelia community. We meet twice a month for a devotion and fellowship while knitting and crocheting. We use this as an outreach ministry, also, by inviting other knitters and crocheters to join us. This month Father Ken blessed eighteen shawls/blankets to be given to those in need in Amelia.

Communion Service in Heathsville, VA–August 2020

During COVID-19, we have been unable to meet inside the chapel.  So, we’ve held our Sunday morning service via Zoom.  In addition to our Zoom Sunday morning service, we began having a Sunday afternoon service on the Chesterfield Heights patio in August. It was good to be back with our Chesterfield Heights friends.




On Pentecost Sunday 2020, our service was held outside during COVID-19. Due to our governor’s orders only ten could attend.  The service was held on Zoom for those who were unable to attend.

Our Bible studies are taught by our Vicar, Father Ken.  Here he is teaching a session from the Gospel of St. Luke.


On a snowy Sunday morning in December 2018, Rev. Chris Royer, Executive Director of Anglican Frontier Missions, told Holy Cross parishioners of his experiences as a missionary in Turkey and the work of God through Anglican Frontier Missions.
