Revitalising St Win's

16 Dec 2020, 10:45 a.m.

Rev Ali Hill will become the new vicar of St Win's from March 2021, subject to ongoing consultation processes being completed. Ali comes from our Resource Church at Saint Mary’s Southampton, and was part of the original planting team for the revitalisation of Saint Mary’s.

Saint Mary’s has grown from 25 people to over 350 since relaunching in September 2018, many of whom are new Christians who have come to faith primarily through the incredibly successful Alpha course.

Ali, her husband Steve, together with a team from Saint Mary’s of around 25 local people will join with the existing congregation at St Win’s to create a new church community. St Winfrid’s church building will undergo substantial renovations during 2021 in order for the church to become the heart of the community once more. Plans include a new kitchen and cafe area which will open out onto a terrace at the front of the building. Our vision is to see hope restored, freedom found and lives transformed in the power and name of Jesus.

The new chapter for St Win’s includes a new website: www.stwins.org. Click here for the website, and to find out more about what’s going on.
