bringing more of God
to more of our lives

Welcome

We are a lively Anglican church for the whole village of Overton.
The church is made up of people at all stages on the faith journey and all ages and backgrounds.

There are good facilities for children and young people to enjoy their own activities. We make good use of our modern Church Rooms with midweek groups running for children and the local community.

Our main Sunday service is at 10:30 am. Weekly home groups are the backbone of the church where people meet to encourage and support each other and grow in our faith in Jesus Christ.

Are you a lay person? Would you like some encouragement for your existing ministry, or for a developing vocational path? More interested in learning from passionate practitioners and others in ministry than in getting a formal qualification? Want help to see your ministry through a missional lens? Then Bishop’s Commission for Mission could be for you.

BCM is a lay training programme focused on enabling church members to live the mission of Jesus in every part of their lives, equipping them to live out their vocation to the full. Through participating in the programme we believe God will shape you for your place in his mission.

To qualify for the training programme you will need to be recommended by your incumbent and PCC, who will usually pay your training costs. Once you have successfully completed the programme, you will be commissioned by the Bishop of Winchester for your role.

To find out more please visit the BCM page www.winchester.anglican.org/bcm/ on the Diocesan website, or contact

Overton Church Heritage Fund

Thank you so much to those who have donated towards this fund and to those who have signed up to give regularly. The initial response means that we are now in a position to repair and renovate the clock, hopefully before the icy weather of the winter. A regular flow of income into this fund will ensure the good state of repair and appearance of the grade II* listed building. If you haven’t already signed up to give an amount regularly please contact David Rees at by email and he will give you a simple pack and a form to fill in.

Evening Praise - Are You Hungry?

Evening Praise is now simply called ‘HUNGRY’. It’s for those who are hungry for more of God in our lives, more of God in our worship. And it’s for those who are hungry to know more of God through teaching. The aim is informal but uplifting worship, teaching, prayer and praise.
