• 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.

    On Sunday 24th Feb at 10 am we will be having a Benefice service at 10am in Hook, with Bishop David, Erica Longfellow (our Patron and Chaplain New College of Oxford) and Rev’d Dr Paul Moore (Archdeacon for Mission).  Visitors to our church please use postcode: RG27 9EG in your SatNav.  St John's church is on the A30 in Hook,  there is limited parking at the church, but there is a large public carpark just across the road (on the junction of Reading road with the A30). Food to follow, everyone welcome, if you are able to bring a contribution there is a sign-up sheet in the Narthex next to the Lunch Club notice.  Marion has been priest in charge, and at this service will be installed as Rector.

    UKULELE FOR FRIENDS – held last friday at St John's was a fabulous event, and lovely to see it so well supported.  Thank you for everyone who took part.

    With every blessing, Reverend Marion de Quidt
