Services

Please join us in worship, or visit our beautiful historic church buildings and find a moment for peace, quiet reflection or prayer. We warmly welcome visitors and newcomers. The Upper Itchen Benefice, consisting of the six Anglican parishes of Beauworth, Bramdean, Cheriton, Hinton Ampner, Kilmeston, and Tichborne, together are part of the Deanery of Alresford in the Diocese of Winchester. All churches are open every day (see Parishes for details). You will find a range of Services taking place each Sunday. In the summer months the Church in the Woods on Bramdean Common also holds services. For information relating to parish administration, services or funerals contact either the Priest -in- Charge Reverend Graham Bowkett tel. 01962 771226 or e-mail; rector@upperitchen.plus.com or the parish Secretary Mrs. Gillian Gray Knight on tel. 01962 736029 e-mail gilliangrayknight@btinternet.com who will be happy to help. Each parish has churchwardens who can also be contacted for assistance – see relevant contacts for each church.

There is plenty to get involved with if you wish, with many opportunities to contribute and help local, national and international community projects. There are social groups, clubs, events and activities to be involved with in our communities and you are warmly invited to come along and find out.
