Welcome to the Whitewater Benefice. Sunday 13th June was our Climate Sunday service, we are going to be talking about climate in the coming months as we join in with Pastic Free July, and look to being carbon neutral in 2030. Sunday 20th June is the 83rd birthday of St John's Church - so join us for an outside service at 10am in Hook which will also be shared via Zoom. Sunday 27th June is our Confirmation Service at St Johns, with Bishop Geoff Annas joing us (this will be in church for Confirmation Candidates and families, and also via Zoom). If you are going to come to a church service, please book via our booking form.
Opening up Church: The Lady chapel at St John's is now open daily for private prayer. We also have a number of groups starting to meet at Church. Please see the Calendar & Weekly Notice for details.
If you would like to get our weekly notices straight to your inbox, you can sign up for weekly notices. Do give me a call if you would like to find out more: 01256 763211.
We are committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of everyone within our church community, see our safeguarding page for contacts & further details.
We are pleased to re-open our churches, starting with some of our children's activities, which are held at St John's in Hook. On Wednesday morning is Bumps and Babes, for children not yet walking and their carers/parents. If your children are mobile, and not yet at school, Fingerprints is our toddler group and meet on a Thursday afternoon.
Once a month we run Messy Church for children 11 and under, plus carers - the next Messy Church is Friday 18th June ‘We are all part of God's Family’ - this is currently via Zoom (due to covid restrictions). Activity packs for Messy Church are available outside the Rectory.
Each Sunday (apart from the first Sunday each month) during the service we have a Junior Church for children aged 3 to 14, in small groups based on age, with age appropriate activities. On Sunday 20th June, Junior Church will be meeting in the Rectory garden, whilst the main 10am service is outside at the front of St John's Church
