The Return of Our Parish

The Return of Our Parish

On 1st May 2017 Hampton Wick was re-instated as a parish in its own right, with St John’s once more recognised as our parish church.

During the 1970s, declining church attendance led the Church of England to combine our parish with that of South Teddington, centred on St Mark’s. In 2008, St John’s Church in Hampton Wick was closed down entirely. Apart from anything else, the future looked bleak for one of Hampton Wick’s most important historic buildings.

The Hampton Wick Association campaigned for the re-opening of our Church and in 2010 the Bishop of London included St John’s in the CofE’s well established ‘church planting’ programme. This programme encourages thriving churches to send memb
ers of their congregations to support the start-up or re-opening of other churches to help get them off the ground.

It has been a huge success and St John’s now has a large and growing congregation of local people and others who come from further away, attracted by the informal family-focused style of worship. Even non-churchgoers appreciate the care that has been lavished on both the building and the gardens around it.
And now, the Church of England has re-established the Parish of St John’s Hampton Wick along its historic boundary.

The Vicar of St John’s, The Rev, Jerry Field said: “We are delighted to celebrate this milestone in the life of St John’s and of Hampton Wick. This gives us more opportunity to deepen relationships with everybody in the community and to serve local needs more effectively. It has been so exciting to see all the lives that have been transformed through the grace of God at St John’s. and our hope is that we will now be able to reach out further into our community.”

Three services are held at St John’s every Sunday, with children’s and youth groups, and many more activities taking place throughout the week.
There are addiction.
St John’s also works with The HWA and others on community events such as The Big Picnic and Remembrance Sunday.

The HWA is delighted by the reinstatement of Hampton Wick’s historic parish status.
