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 coronavirus pandemic.  After the introduction of a third lockdown, we have returned to being almost exclusively an online community which desires to provide support and hope to our neighbours.

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

Current Parish Life

With the increase in Covid-19 infections we are again in lockdown. The Parish is aware that infections of the more easily transmitted mutation are high in the Stubbington and Hill Head area and are taking a cautious approach. Therefore most in-person services and events have again been suspended.

The current situation is:

  • There are no in-person Sunday services at either St. Edmund’s or Holy Rood.
  • The Streams meetings are suspended.
  • 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 but will be kept under review.
  • We expect most people to join us online at the weekly “Church Online” from Holy Rood on Sundays at 10am, and the half hour, Evening Prayer on Sundays at 7:30. You cannot attend these services in person.
  • Children’s and other groups will meet online.
  • Holy Rood Church will be open for Private Prayer on Thursdays from 7pm to 8pm.
  • The Parish Office is closed to visitors. Please make contact through phone or email .
  • 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.

The website is currently being updated. As part of this the /coronavirus page has been removed and information put on this home page.
