Church of England Diocese of Winchester Wonston

About Us

The church is in a peaceful rural setting at the eastern end of Wonston village, off the road to Stoke Charity and Micheldever and close to the River Dever. In its churchyard are buried the ancestors of many families who have lived and worked here over hundreds of years.
The church is open every day for quiet prayer and reflection and a service is held here practically every Sunday throughout the year. The usual pattern of services is shown on our website and everyone is welcome at all these services. If you are not a regular churchgoer, you don’t need to worry about what to do at the services as the clergy and worship leaders will always try to make the services easy to follow.Coffee and biscuits are also served after some of the services and this is an ideal opportunity for making new friends and renewing old friendships.
Wonston church is part of the Upper Dever Benefice which, together with the churches of the Lower Dever Benefice, forms the Dever Group Ministry. If the service at Wonston is not at the time when you wish to go to church, or you simply want to experience a different type of service, there is generally a wide choice available in the Dever Group each Sunday. Forthcoming services in the Upper Dever Benefice are listed on the Services page and a full listing of services in the Dever Group are listed each month in The West Dever News, copies of which are available from Holy Trinity Wonston.
A fortnightly Holy Communion service is also held at Sutton Manor Nursing Home for those residents who are not able to come to church.
For adults there is a Christian Fellowship Group which meets monthly at the Victoria Hall, Sutton Scotney for a short service, a talk and refreshments.
There are 3 primary schools within the area served by the Dever Group - two are Church of England schools at Micheldever and Barton Stacey and the third is the County Primary at South Wonston which shares the same site as St Margaret’s Church. The clergy are closely involved with activities at all these schools.
Wonston church has a fine set of bells which are rung every week and we are always looking for new members to join the bell-ringing team. If you are interested in exploring the art of Bell Ringing please look at the Bell Ringing page for details.
One of the highlights of the social life of the parish is the annual church fete held in July.
