The Doxford Cross is
over two metres high and is made from individually modelled ceramic tiles. The cross is
mounted on the front wall of the church auditorium behind the pulpit.
This postcard is an inspirational card based on the same spiritual concept as the breatplate prayer of St. Patrick.
In using this daily prayer and affirmation the Christian commits themself to Christ, but also to his way. As we use it we trust that He knows best for us, and trust that even though don't always fully understand it, he has a purpose for our lives that is for our good.
The Binding Prayer is drawn in a Celtic uncial font alongside the Cross of Christ, to remind us that we are set free at great cost to God. Alongside the cross is a spring flowing from rock, to represent the refreshing ever flowing stream of grace and love that flows from the one who is the solid foundaiton for our lives.

|The early Christians,
persecuted for their faith, used the simple symbol of the fish as a secret sign. If you
were talking to someone and suspected that they might also be a Christian then in the dust
you would draw a fish symbol, and then rub it out. (like a doodle). If they replied with a
similar symbol then you knew you shared the same faith.
