The Heart of God at the Heart of our Community

Welcome

Crofton Parish serves the Hampshire coastal communities of Stubbington and Hill Head. We seek to make the transforming love of Jesus Christ known in the area.

Like in all of society, life in Crofton Parish has changed radically while we work through the Covid-19 pandemic. With the relaxing of restrictions, we are able to have some in-person services and group meetings. However the number of people able to attend is still limited, so our main Holy Rood service is a hybrid in-person and online service. Our desire is to provide support and hope to our neighbours as we recover from the many, varied, effects of the virus.

While most of this website is still basically correct, please note that many meetings described cannot take place at this time. Check the Event Calendar to find out what is taking place.

Current Parish Life

Covid-19 restrictions in England have ended and the responsibility for managing the virus falls
to individuals and organisations. Churches remain complex environments for mitigating the risks of transmission. We are no longer requesting that you only attend in person on alternate weeks – you are welcome to both Holy Rood and St. Edmund’s any week and you can sing if you wish to!

The 10am Holy Rood service will continue to be livestreamed on Facebook.

We do want people to be, and feel, safe and comfortable in church. Therefore:

  • Please do not attend if you have any Covid symptoms or should be self-isolating.
  • Although mask wearing is no longer mandatory we would be grateful if you would wear a mask when standing or singing when inside either of our churches.
  • At Holy Rood, there will be some areas specially demarcated for those who still wish to social distance. But, regardless of where people are sitting, please be sensitive to others’ needs and check they are comfortable with you sitting down next to them or standing close to them.
  • The “one-way” system will still be in place at Holy Rood.
  • The Thursday morning Holy Rood service, which is particularly for those who cannot access the online services or who are at risk of isolation, will continue.
  • Please don’t struggle alone. If you need practical help, especially if you are shielding again, please get in touch via phone 01329. 661154 or email help@croftonparish.org.uk. If you would like prayer for any reason, please email prayer@croftonparish.org.uk. If you are in a position to help others, please contact the office.
