Services in the Benefice

All Saints', Hursley, interior

Update:

Our 'in person' Wednesday 11am service of BCP Holy Communion in Compton church will go from every other week, to every week. We would ask that only members of the congregation attend who have been vaccinated three weeks ago or more and that government guidelines continue to be followed.

Regular services

The Bishop of Winchester has written to parish clergy, "While churches are permitted to hold services in line with national guidance on the safe use of places of worship, clergy and PCCs should consider not doing so and instead offer some form of digital worship if at all possible."

Such is the dramatic rise in numbers of infections in our area that we have taken the difficult decision to follow the bishop’s request and suspend in person Sunday services and instead to offer on Sundays a streamed service on Facebook at 9.30am, and a Zoom service at 5pm. For the streamed service we will have just the minimum number of people present, all properly distanced.

Please read the details on the right hand side of this page to join us in your chosen form of worship.
