• 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 open during the day for prayer, during the week for activities for all ages, Saturdays for weddings, and on Sundays for a variety of worship opportunities. We have a growing team of leaders and church family team. We would love to welcome you to join us. If you are interested in finding out what we do, please view our weekly notices, phone the church office (01256 760169), or sign up for our  Weekly Notices and Prayer Diary to be emailed to you.

    We are delighted to be sharing in our North Hampshire 'one question survey' entiled Who Cares? 

    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
