Welcome to the Whitewater Benefice

  • ChristmasWe are now in the season of Advent, and the lead up to Christmas.  See our Christmas page for details.  There are lots of events so please keep an eye on the calendar for details.   On Sunday at St John's is our Gift Service, where we are asking for donations of unwrapped gifts for under 18s which will be given to Caritas for distribution. Next week (10th December) is the Messy Church celebrating Christmas on 10th December.  Sunday 12th December, we are hosting Carols round the Christmas tree, at 16:30, outside St John's in Hook.  This looks like it will be a great community event with BBQ, refreshments, Christingles and crafts for the children, do join us if you can!

    At St John's there is the Big Family Christmas card - we shall be asking for you to snap a selfie or a photo, send it via email and donate - we will then create a Big Family Christmas Card with all your selfies and donate the money to charity.  Click here for more details.

    Advent courses are now ongoing:  On Wednesday at 11:15 via Zoom looking at the prophecies of Isaiah proclaiming the coming of Jesus.  On Thursday evening via Zoom with the first of four sessions in which we shall be watching scenes from the film “It's a Wonderful Life” as we link this Christmas Classic to the bible and God's message for us in Advent.
