MISSION JESUS – thank you for bringing the contents of your Mission Jesus boxes to the 10am service in Hook today.  Please place this in the envelope you have been given with the Gift Aid form completed if possible.  The card reader is also available before or after the service for your donation.  Your £1 a week mounted up to a total of £400 on the first collection date, thank you for continuing to save a £1 coin each week.  If you have never had a box to save your £1 in each week, please take one from the back of Church to use in the rest of the year.


CHILDREN’S SOCIETY BOXES - Thank you to everyone who contributed via their box or by Direct Debit - the total raised was £225.  Boxes are available at the back of Church for collection - there are 2 spare boxes - please pick one up for your spare change. You’d be surprised how much it collects in a year for such a good cause.  Please see Juliette Bromham for more information.


THEFTS FROM LOCAL CHURCHES - You may have seen an article in The Basingstoke Gazette saying there have been break-ins in three churches in Basingstoke and Chineham. Safes have been taken so it looks like professionals.   All the incidents happened in the early hours of the morning.

So please be vigilant and check all windows and doors are locked as required when you leave the building.

Thanks Liz Wilson





GOOD LUCK – to those members of the St John’s choir who are taking RSCM singing exams next weekend.  Please note that there is no access to the Church or Narthex next Saturday 29th June.  The Lady Chapel will remain open as usual.


COMING UP: during August we shall be preaching and learning more about prayer and how we can deepen our prayer lives.

THANK YOU FROM ROSIE MANDRY - Thank you to everyone who sponsored me on the Skydive. I had an amazing time, the weather was perfect along with everyone who helped make the day one to remember. I had a fantastic skydiving partner who I am  sure was an adrenalin freak, we had an amazing time. God had me in the palm of his hand because I had not one ounce of fear, even sitting at the edge of the plane door looking down 2 miles knowing within seconds I would be falling 125miles an hour. Fabulous, I couldn’t wait!  I have raised an amazing amount for the Pink Place and also for the TLC, so thank you all so much for your generosity. It is hugely appreciated.



The Annual RAF Families day takes place on 25th July 2019. The Mothers Union runs the refreshment tent.  Please can people make cakes for this event - freeze in readiness!  Cakes will be collected at 10am from St John’s Church, Hook, on Wednesday 24th July. Please list ingredients used. Thank you in anticipation Jennifer Martin (07803) 505265.
