On the afternoon of 17th May 2016, our church was engulfed by a fire which destroyed its roof. We thank God that apart from one person who suffered minor burns, nobody was hurt. We are grateful to all the firefighters and local residents who acted so swiftly and courageously to put out the fire and to salvage so many of the church contents.

St Thomas More restoration

God willing, the restoration of St Thomas More Church will be completed on Friday 17th March - or rather, that is the day the builder leaves. Not only will the roof fire damage have been made good but also the sanctuary reordering will have been completed, and on time. Exciting as this is there will still be plenty of work to do before the church is ready for the celebration of Mass. All being well, the last Mass held at St. Johnís will be on Sunday 2nd April and then Mass for Palm Sunday 9th April will be celebrated in the restored church of St. Thomas More. Please pray that all goes to plan over these next couple of weeks.

Parking at St John's

Parking is available outside the WI Hut and at Greenfields School, both on Green Lane, Hartley Wintney. Or of course, we could park wherever we would have parked if we had been going to St Thomas More; St John's is after all just around the corner!

Please do not use the car park at St John's because this will be needed by their own parishioners who are attending their 9am service.

Temporary Mass arrangements

Our friends at St John's have kindly offered us the use of a large meeting room for Sunday Mass. Accordingly, starting from Sunday 5th June, we will celebrate Sunday Mass at St John's Church, Hartley Wintney at 8:45am. The address is St John's Church, Fleet Road, Hartley Wintney RG27 8ED.

Every Sunday, tea and coffee will be served after Mass.
