Welcome to the Whitewater Benefice

  • candlemas - https://pixabay.com/photos/stained-glass-window-church-jesus-4472141/Sunday 30th January is Candlemas, this is where we remember the presentation of Jesus to God at the temple and celebrate Jesus being Light to the World. On Sunday 30th January there is no 10am service in Hook or on Zoom, but instead we are meeting at Rotherwick at 10:30 for a Benefice service (complete with Junior Church).

    At St John's on 23rd January, we had our first sung Eucharist for a long time, it was so lovely to have the choir back with us.  If you want to know more about joining the choir see the Music page. On Sunday 30th January the choir are also joining other local choirs to sing Evensong at St Michael’s Basingstoke with our former Director of Music, Ian Rees - all welcome to join us. 

    On Sunday 6th February, The Youth Group will meet between 16:30 to 18:00, we will be making pizza and reflecting on Jesus being the bread of life.  All year 9 upwards are welcome to join us (we meet on the 1st & 3rd Sundays each month).

    For the protection of others and yourself, please consider taking a Lateral Flow Test before coming to church, and do not attend if you or a member of your household are unwell.
