Reproduced with permission.Welcome to the Whitewater Benefice.  Sunday 25th July the 10am services is via Zoom - the theme is from our reading in Ephesians: is Strength in the Spirit.  If you prefer to attend services in Church, they are 8:30 in Heckfield & 18:00 in Hook.  Next Sunday, 1st August, we are planning to have all our services in Church.  We hope to be able to live stream the 10am service via Zoom.

    Opening up Church: The Lady chapel at St John's, Rotherwick and Mattingley churches are open daily for private prayer.  We also have a number of groups meeting in Church.  During August we hope to be able to hold more services in Church. Please see the Calendar & Weekly Notices for details. 

    Congratulations to Sam and Olivia, who were recently ordained.  Many of you will remember them from their time in the benefice.  Sam is now a curate in the Tyne Valley and Olivia is a curate in Lancashire.

    We are pleased to re-open our churches, starting with some of our children's activities, which are held at St John's in Hook during term time. On Wednesday morning is Bumps and Babes, for children not yet walking and their carers/parents. If your children are mobile, and not yet at school, Fingerprints is our toddler group and meet on a Thursday afternoon. 

    Once a month we run Messy Church for children 11 and under, plus carers - the next Messy Church is Friday 16th July.

    Each Sunday (apart from the first Sunday each month) during the service we have a Junior Church for children aged 3 to 14, in small groups based on age, with age appropriate activities. 

    Get involved this July
