The Parish Churches of

Compton, Hursley and Otterbourne

Three churches -
where faith makes sense

Faith can make sense, we don’t expect you to leave your brain at the door, or suspend disbelief, just come with an open mind.

All are welcome here in churches with traditional worship and progressive thinking.

Welcome to the benefice of Compton, Hursley and Otterbourne. We are three Church of England parish churches lying just south of the ancient city of Winchester. Each has its own history, community and plans for the future, but we share resources, people and a willingness to work together for the kingdom of God.
All are welcome here - in churches built in the past, with traditional worship, but looking to the future with progressive thinking.

It's all about God's presence

Worship creates a space for us to experience the presence of God, it gives refreshment, purpose and renewed energy for the week ahead.

There is much to see on the site, use the menu or the panels below to explore:
