Whether you are visiting us on holiday, new to the area or completely new to the church, we would like to welcome you to our parish! We know what it's like when you go to a new place and you don't know quite what to expect, so we've provided the information below and on the linked pages to help you learn more about us and to choose the services that will suit you best.

The first thing you need to know is that we have two church buildings. The older of the two churches (St Edmund's), which is also known as Crofton Old Church is located in Lychgate Green, off of Titchfield Road, PO14 3HA.  A church building has been located on this site for about 1000 years.

The largest of the two buildings, Holy Rood Church, is the parish church and is located just off the main village centre in Gosport Road, PO14 2 AS.

The church services at St Edmund’s are traditional in nature, while the services at Holy Rood, although Anglican, are more informal in style.

More information about the times and format of services at both churches are available under the 'Services' menu.

People tend to dress casually when they come to our services and activities, but please feel free to wear whatever clothes you feel comfortable in.
