Church Services

Church Services in the Benefice

Worship is our life blood and our joy. As a group of churches we offer a variety of opportunities to come together in church. Our regular worship is on a Sunday, with All-age and Communion Services including a monthly Sung Eucharist (Communion) service, Matins, Evensong, and Contemporary Worship.  Our worship has a variety of styles from more traditional to contemporary.  The Benefice Ministry team meets once each month to reflect on our worshipping life, and plan together.

Our main 10am Sunday Service from St John's in Hook is also shared via Zoom.

The main service in Heckfield, Mattingley or Rotherwick churches is at 11am.

Please refer to our weekly notices (which can be downloaded from the Home Page) or the calendar  for details.
