Welcome

This delightful little Anglican parish church in Church Lane, Dogmersfield, dating back to 1843, is part of the benefice of Hartley Wintney with Elvetham, Winchfield and Dogmersfield, in the Deanery of Odiham and Diocese of Winchester.

Unlike many small villages, Dogmersfield maintains a service every Sunday of the year and, with the exception of the occasional evening services, always at the same time of 10.30am on a Sunday morning.

Services are on a regular weekly pattern, see the monthly calendar, and led either by the Vicar, The Rev Canon Mark Tanner, a Curate, a Lay Reader, or Retired Clergy. Mrs Sarah Groombridge is the Lay Reader resident in the parish who takes a large number of services herself.

ABOUT OUR HISTORY

More Information

For more details of the staff team or for enquiries about baptisms, weddings and funerals or for more general enquiries about the Christian faith, see Contact or visit www.stjohnshw.org.uk. The church office for the administration of all three parishes is in Hartley Wintney, three miles away. For more general information on church weddings please see Weddings

The church is well supported by its own organist and choir; the latter sing at most of the weddings as well as for Sunday services. The church also has its own band of bell-ringers, who ring for weddings and special occasions and practise on Thursdays and Sunday mornings.

For small groups visiting, up to four cars can usually be safely parked at the main gate.

For Sunday services and special offices we are dependent on the goodwill of the owner of The Dower House adjacent for parking in his field because the church is situated on a dangerously narrow country lane.

The current owner is Mr Richard Revell, who must be contacted personally in advance in writing for all services other than the regular Sunday services. The address is The Dower House, Dogmersfield, RG27 8SZ. He currently charges £60 per service outside of Sunday for the privilege of using this parking.

Dogmersfield also has its own church primary school, Dogmersfield CE Aided Primary School whose catchment area extends into Church Crookham and Crookham Village. The school and the church work closely together.

For the comfort of visitors the church now has its own composting toilet.

Please do visit our church and consider becoming a Friend of All Saints’ Dogmersfield see FOASD page.

Hear our church bells ring

Music brings us together in celebration

There are three bells in this Church cast by Gillett and Johnston in 1924. Treble: 3-2-0 cwt. No 2: 4-1-14 cwt. and Tenor 5-3-0 cwt. hung in an oak frame probably dating from 1843 when the Church was built. The Bells are rung from the ground floor of the Tower.
