• 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.

    During the Autumn we are preaching on the letter of James, and offer study notes on the 'Teaching' section of the website. Do consider joining one of our small groups to discuss and learn together.

    We celebrate the arrival of our Assistant Priest, the Reverend Shona Hoad and her family to Mattingley Rectory. Shona will share in the whole ministry of the Benefice. Thank you for joining us.

    Our Curate, the Reverend Mark Lewis has rejoined the ministry team in his home parish of Yateley. Thank you for all you have brought to us, and we look forward to keeping in touch and sharing in special events.

    The St John's Church Coffee Shop is now OPEN. Please join us for Coffee! Thank you so much to Tesco for their Community funding, and to everyone who has made this possible. 

    With every blessing, Reverend Marion de Quidt
