Hambledon church is a warm and thriving church at the heart of Hambledon village with a friendly congregation of all ages.  We are linked to Busbridge church and  between us we offer a whole range of resources, activities and services. We are a Church of England church.

We are renowned for our warm welcome to anyone.  Above all we seek to be a community that knows and loves Jesus and shares his love with those around us.

Where are we?   You will find us at the top of Church Lane, off Rock Hill.

We run two services every Sunday morning, with the same teaching programme, but different in style.

Our ‘heritage congregation’ is at 9.00am. You’ll find hearty hymn singing, a good sermon and a familiar structure using the Book of Common Prayer.

Our ‘contemporary congregation’ is at 10.30am.  This is deliberately informal and relaxed. It is a service where we offer baptisms and have groups for children.The music is led by guitars and keyboard.

On a regular basis we hold Messy Church services, either at 10:30am at the church, or in the afternoon at a venue such as the Village Hall. These services are fun and informal and include a range of crafts and activities (and often food!). Check out the church website for more details of these services and contact the church office (01483 421267) if you would like to be added to the mailing list to receive updates on dates and venues.

Children and Young People
Children of all ages are welcome at any of our services.  During our 10.30am services in term-time we run a group for the children – the aim of these is for the children to have fun learning what it means to follow Jesus. Check out the church website for more information on groups for teenagers at Busbridge Church.

Home Groups and other events
We have a number of home groups that meet midweek to share together, pray, laugh, read the Bible and deepen our relationships with each other and with God.   We also have many social gatherings such as lunches and suppers, monthly prayer meetings and annual weekends away together.

Who’s who?

Simon Taylor – Rector

We’re are a United Benefice, comprising Hambledon and Busbridge Church. We very much consider ourselves one church family, even though we meet at different places on a Sunday. Our Rector for both churches is the Revd Simon Taylor.  Simon and his family arrived here from Crawley in October 2010.

New Associate Minister, based in Hambledon

The Rector, The Rev. Simon Taylor, who is also now Area Dean, is delighted to announce that after a careful and prayer-filled interview process the Associate Minister post has been offered to and accepted by The Rev. Simon Willetts. Simon is currently Associate Minister at ChristChurch, Virginia Water. He and his wife, Naomi, will be moving into Mervil Bottom in the summer. He will be formally licensed and welcomed at a special service at St Peter’s on Sunday 15 September 2019 at 6pm with a reception afterwards at Clock Barn. We are obliged to point out that the appointment remains subject to clear DBS, medicals and paperwork.

This appointment would not have been possible without the overwhelming generosity and support of all those in our village community who responded to the fundraising campaign. At the recent Annual Church Meeting the Treasurer, Andrew Dunn, was delighted to announce that we hit the pledge target. If anyone would like to discuss their pledge, or if anyone has any questions about church finance, they should feel free to contact Andrew on 01428 482 113 or by email adunn@candey.com. 

Our leadership at St Peter’s includes David Jenkins, who shares in the teaching and service leading, and our Wardens Liz Cooke and Derek Pearsall and our Assistant Warden David Chadwick.
