• May I offer a warm welcome from our happy team here in 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 Heckfield. During the coronavirus lockdown we have continued with many activities, and you are very welcome to join us. 

    This Sunday,  St John's Church in Hook will be open at 5pm for Private Prayer and then at 6pm for Holy Communion. We are working with the Government and Church of England guidelines and will have social distancing and hand sanitiser. If you would like to join us at 6pm, please let Church Warden Richard Morley know so that we plan the seating. Phone 01256 762948, email richardj.morley1@outlook.com.

Mattingley Church opens for Private Prayer on Tuesday from 2-4pm and Rotherwick opens for Private Prayer on Saturday from 2-4pm.

    stepping out in faithEvery Sunday we continue to have a website service, with a page of readings, prayers & music, with some videos to watch, which you may like to view by selecting the appropriate page via the online-services tab.  Every Sunday we continue to have a live video-conferencing zoom service, with the zoom open from 9:45 for a 10am start.  The zoom meeting id is on the online-services page for each sunday and on the calendar event for that service.  Our theme for this Sunday is Walking on Water/Stepping out in Faith.

    You can sign up for our weekly notices to be emailed to you. If your neighbour is not using this service, you might like to encourage them or to print the notices sheet out for them?  Small groups are meeting around the Benefice using 'virtual fellowship'. We have a list on the weekly notices sheet above. Please do feel free to try something new if you wish, and join in with one of the groups. The notices sheet has all contact details.
