Revd. Richard Burningham

Welcome to St Peter and St Paul’s village church website.

As our beautiful church is set in the heart of a beautiful village in the lovely Hampshire countryside we aim to be a flourishing community of faith at the heart of a flourishing village. The church is open every day during the day and anyone is welcome to come in and enjoy this beautiful space in the centre of the village. We are open for services every Sunday in the year as advertised and have a midweek Holy Communion service on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month. On Thursday evenings we have a Home Group at 7.30 pm at the New Vicarage along the Romsey Road. You will have a warm and friendly welcome.

Our activities are embedded in village life – with bells ringing every Sunday, the summer and winter fair, a marquee market in August, Harvest supper and festi vals, Remembrance Day outside at the memorial, Christmas carols around the village, soup and sherry on Saturdays around Christmas and into the new year and more – and the village Magazine each month celebrates it all.

We believe that the most important thing in the world is to get connected to God who made this world and each one of us in it. We believe he loves us and we can find peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ who died for us and has sent us his Holy Spirit to help us to live more and more as he wants us to live. We want to share this new life that he gives us with those around us.

If you want to talk about faith or have any questions about God please contact me or any of the staff or members of the church. For baptisms weddings and funerals please get in touch with me.

Rev Richard Burningham.

Within the Parish there are also two Churches All Saint's, Little Somborne and St.Mary's, Ashley in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust and which each hold two or three Services every year. The Parish Church's monthly AliVE  service aims to offer a less formal, more flexible form of worship with modern music provided by local musicians on a Sunday evening. A "Tiny Tots" group meets each week for mothers and their youngest children as does an after school 'FunDay' club on Mondays together with a 'Messy Church' group run by our Methodist colleagues. In addition the Church is supported by enthusiastic teams of singers, bell-ringers, needle workers and others and holds a number of regular Social and Fund-raising events.

Details of all Services and events can be found in the Parish magazine the Gauntlet which is managed by the Church and which is distributed freely to all homes in the community. Current details can also be found on the notice board in the Church porch.

For those more interested in the history and fabric of this beautiful Church, a Guide is available.
