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

We are thankful that the lockdown has resulted in the significant reduction in the rate of Covid-19 infections, hospital admissions and deaths. The government have given a roadmap for the easing of restrictions. Crofton Parish is therefore re-examining the services and meetings that can be held in-person.

The current situation is:

  • There are no in-person Sunday services at Holy Rood.
  • St. Edmund’s services are meeting with half the congregation meeting each week.
  • We hope to have some Streams meetings in March.
  • 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.
  • We still expect most people to join us online at the weekly “Church Online” from Holy Rood on Sundays at 10am. You cannot attend this service in person.
  • On the first Thursday of the month we have a day of prayer. For more information see here >>>
  • Children’s, Youth and other groups will meet online.
  • 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.
