We have recently completed a project to install  a toilet and kitchen facility at the back of the church and  have removed some pews at the front of the church to create a larger performance area.  We are now in the process of having a stage designed for this area, which we will be able to fully  utilise for the Music Festival in August.

Over the last decade Holy Cross Goodnestone has undergone an extensive interior restoration, and a recent organ restoration. We now have a beautiful building, with a stunning acoustic and one of the finest organs in the area. 

The aim of Goodnestone Music is to establish Holy Cross church as a venue for regular concerts and recitals.
