Welcome

  • Welcome to the Whitewater Benefice in Hampshire. We are 4 churches in the Church of England, Winchester Diocese: St John the Evangelist in Hook, and the village churches of Mattingley, Rotherwick and St Michael in Heckfield. Some of our churches have ancient foundations and church bells. We all celebrate the focus of our church life: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.

    As we begin our New Year in 2018, we are delighted to welcome you to activities, prayer, services, Weddings, worship, and friendship. If you are interested in finding out what we do, please view our weekly notices, check our calendar, phone the church office (01256 760169), or sign up for our  Weekly Notices and Prayer Diary to be emailed to you.

    We begin the ALPHA course with a taster evening on Thursday 11th January, 7.30pm in the Solar Room, Hook (RG27 9EG). This will be followed by weekly gatherings on Thursday evenings 7.30pm in the Solar Room, Hook. You are welcome to contact the Rev’d Mark Lewis by email to find out more: revd.mark.lewis@gmail.com

    Click on each of the pictures below for more details about each of the churches including where to find the church and where to park when visiting. They are beautiful. May you find the peace and presence of God when you visit.

    Here is a prayer for the New Year (adapted from www.lords-prayer-words.com): ‘This New Year, we are reminded that by your amazing grace, each day is new, fresh and bursting with love, from here to eternity. Thank you, Lord. Amen’

    With every blessing for 2018,
    Reverend Marion de Quidt
