About Us

We’re glad you found us! Whether you are local to Basingstoke or joining us online from afar, we hope that you will find us a welcoming and inclusive community.

The Parish of Basingstoke Down is a newly formed parish, created from the unification of Immanuel Church, Hatch Warren and Beggarwood with St Mark’s Church, Kempshott. You can find out about our combined pattern of worship under ‘Sunday services’, but do also use the calendar and check the News to find out about other activities and events. There are lots of things going on during the week and different seasonal events for you to join in with.

As a new parish blessed with a wonderful team we will, in the coming months, be shaping a new vision for where God is calling us to be involved in our communities in this corner of Basingstoke. You can find out about all of the things that we currently offer on our website.

If you are new to faith and would like to know more about what following Jesus means, we’d love to meet with you. If you are new to the area and want to get to know other people then our toddler groups, craft or ‘tea and cake’ groups might be just the thing. If you haven’t been to church for ages but would like to be part of a church community again, we won’t judge you! Our desire is to be inclusive of all - and you can read more about this here

Whether you come into our buildings or we meet you out and about, we hope to share with you something of the love that God has for you.

Nicola (Vicar) and the communities of Immanuel and St Mark’s
