The Church building may be at the end of Church Road, but you will also find us out in the community in the Parish of Hook-with-Warsash.
Mike and Nicky-Sue are our Joint Vicars in charge of the Parish. They are assisted by a team of volunteers who help with various tasks across the Parish. In fact, the Church could not survive without help from all these volunteers.
Why not pop in and see us?

An illustrated booklet
‘The Parish Church – A Short History’ by Wyn Newbury is available at the back of St.Mary’s for 50p.On 20th May 1869, Arthur Hornby who lived in Hook House, wrote to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners seeking to give 5 acres of land for the building of a church, burial ground and parsonage.
A deed conveying 7 acres was registered on 18th July 1870 and the foundation stone was laid on 16th August 1870. The new church was consecrated on 16th August 1871 as the Consolidated Chapelry of St.Mary, Hook with Warsash. The parsonage was then built next to the church. The population of the new church district was put at 920 (700 taken from Sarisbury and 220 from Titchfield).
The new parish was gazetted in the London gazette on 22nd March 1872 with it’s boundaries fixed.
Serving in our community
Not just part of church on a Sunday, many of our church members live or work in Warsash. They can be found in many of the organisations and groups in the Village.
