The Benefice Office looks after both the Parish of Hook (registered charity number 1183688) and the Parish of Heckfield with Mattingley & Rotherwick (HMR - registered charity number 1132735). The Benefice Office is found at St John's Church, Hook. Any personal visits will need to be booked with the Rector or Administrator. We are not currently open for unplanned visits.
|Canon Marion de Quidt is the Rector for the Whitewater Benefice. Marion has been in Whitewater since 2015, and loves our team ministry in the Benefice. She is also Area Dean of Odiham Deanery, and enthusiastic about nurturing vocations and training. In 2020 Marion was invited to join the College of Canons (to become an Honorary Canon) at Winchester Cathedral. Marion trained as a scientist, and worked in the Pharmaceutical industry. A sermon about compassion of God, triggered a renewed search for the Lord's direction and lead to ordination training at STETS in Sarum College, Salisbury. Marion lives with husband Simon in Hook Rectory. Her weekly day off is Tuesday.
