Christ Church Crookham is the parish church of Church Crookham and Crookham Village and is situated on Gally Hill Road in the heart of the community.
Our worship services are varied, to meet the different spiritual needs of our Parish. Our aim in worship is to make a meeting place with God and with one another.
We offer a warm welcome to you at our church.

This prayer calendar draws together general topics for each day, specific dioceses in the worldwide Anglican Church, parishes in our own diocese and geographical areas of our parish so that each day has a unique collection of topics for prayer.

A new feature on the website: the Crookham Diary. I’ll be starting it off with a posting every few days or so, but we hope that eventually others will contribute too. The aim is to show, in a fairly light-hearted way, how life and faith work together.

Thought for the day
The book of Ecclesiastes shows us two ways to live, the way of wisdom, and the way of folly; the way of love, and the way of hatred; the way of calm, and the way of unhappiness.
"Be not quick in your spirit to become angry, for anger lodges in the heart of fools."
When we become angry, it can be a power to drive us to protest, to reform, to protect others. But its power is great, and can take away our good judgement and self control.
May the anger in your life be such as to give you purpose, rather than robbing you of your reason.
Have a good day,
Vicar of Crookham
give us such self control
that the great potency of our emotions
may not hinder or disable us,
but rather drive and energise us.
