• 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.

    It was lovely to see some many of you at the various Rembrance Services and events for the Armistice Centenary - with around 450 people at the War Memorial in Hook on November 11th.  We also had a memorable evening at the "Whitewater Remembrance" at the end of October, many thanks to the team for arranging it.

    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.

    Although there is no Hook Village cracker this year, we will holding a St John's Christmas Cracker on Saturday 8th December from 5pm to 7:30.  There will be lots of fun for all the family: see the Cracker page for details.

    With every blessing, Reverend Marion de Quidt
