Welcome

  • 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.

    Living JesusDuring June & July we will be using a book by the retired Bishop of Oxford called ‘Living Jesus’ by John Pritchard from which we shall study, think and preach.  If you would like a copy, please contact Mel in the office or sign the list in the Narthex or in the Lady Chapel.  

    Come and celebrate the 80th anniversary of the dedication of St John's Church on Sunday 24th June. A service at 10:30 of hymns and songs chosen by groups associated with the church followed by BBQ lunch.  All welcome to the services, tickets for the BBQ are £5 for adults and £3 for children under 12.

    Click on each of the pictures below for more details about each of the churches including where to find the church and where to park when visiting. They are beautiful. May you find the peace and presence of God when you visit.

    With every blessing,
    Reverend Marion de Quidt
