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.
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 are now in the season of Advent - a time of reflection, thinking not only about the birth of Jesus, but also Jesus' promised return. Our Sunday worship will be special for four weeks, including Advent candles, and Baby Jesus Rocks in Hook.
During Advent we will be looking at the book 'Walking Backwards to Christmas' by Stephen Cottrell. There will be weekly sessions at 7:30 Thursdays during Advent at St Johns or a breakfast session later in December. If you would like a copy of the book talk to Jon, Shona or Mel in the office.
We had a great time at the Christmas Cracker on Saturday 8th December, thank you to the team and all the volunteers for making the event so successful.
With every blessing, Reverend Marion de Quidt
