St Faith's Church, Havant, PO9 1EH
Welcome to our entry on A Church Near You. A much fuller picture of life in our parish can be found at www.stfaith.com. We are a traditional parish church, in the heart of the town of Havant. We are inclusive and welcoming to all; our preached theology is generally liberal. Though mainly an adult congregation, we have strong links with local schools and with local young people through other charities we support locally. We also provide 'The Pallant Centre' - a community hub for the whole community, and St Faith's Charity Shop where we 'reduce, reuse and recycle'.
St. Faith's is fully committed to the Church of England's Safeguarding policies, as enacted by the Diocese of Portsmouth. Any safeguarding concerns about either children or vulnerable adults should be brought to the immediate attention of the Rector, Canon Tom Kennar, or our Safeguarding Officer, Mrs. Pauline West.
Holy Communion, from Common Worship, with hymns and sung Eucharist, led by the Rector.
Sunday Parish Communion (weekly)

This service is also streamed live on our website and Facebook page.
