This chapel is located on the north side of the church; it contains a small altar and, like the Lady Chapel, is used for worship during the week. The name derives from the life-sized crucifix which is normally mounted on the west wall.
Since 2006, this space has also been employed as a Children's Chapel, with furnishings, resources and decorations bought and installed for the purpose. Its main use is as a (partly screened-off) centre for the use of the children (and teachers!) of our Junior Church when they come into church during the Sunday morning Sung Eucharist, and as a refuge for parents and small children!
