Welcome

  • Hello everyone. We are a group of four Churches in Hampshire, with a town centre church in Hook, St John the Evangelist, and three village churches of Mattingley, Rotherwick and Heckfield. Our photos are at the bottom of this page. We are called the Whitewater Benefice, because the River Whitewater runs through us. We have continued a vibrant mix of worship and socials despite the coronavirus lockdown, and are delighted to welcome new people to join us.

    Our churches are open as follows (please remember to follow guidance & wear face masks if attending):

    In addition, for people who continue to prefer to worship from their own home, every Sunday we have a website service, with a page of readings, prayers & music, with some videos to watch, which you may like to view by selecting the appropriate page via the online-services tab.   

    Andrew from TearfundWe have begun a new series of reflections on our Wonderful World - Creationtide, Climate and Harvest. On Sunday 20th September we had Andrew Bryce from Tearfund who shared Tearfund's work with us - the videos from Andrew's talk are now on our Tearfund page. Tearfund is one of the charities we support as a church (previously at St John's we supported Tearfund by toilet twinning).

    During this season of Creationtide, we shall have walks, a litter pick, small group studies and deeper reflection groups on how we care for God's World. Our Messy Church on 18th September will also be exloring Creation & how we can look after the wonderful world created by God.

    We continue to support our Local Foodbank: please see our Foodbank Page for details, including a list of items currently required.

    You can sign up for our weekly notices to be emailed to you. The notices sheet has all contact details for our groups. Do give me a call if you would like to find out more: 01256 763211.

    With every blessing, Canon Marion de Quidt
