The parish boundary and areas can be seen on an enlarged version of the map by clicking the image to the right.
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
And thank you for the various answers to my question about in what areas you are prepared to fail, which included dusting, gardening, cleaning the windows, deleting e mails, sorting out the loft.
And the idea that you can always do the other tasks another time, and ideally we should manage a balance.
Important to remember the old adage: ‘boring people have tidy homes’.
Have a good day.
Vicar of Crookham.
May God grant you the blessing of efficiency, that your tasks may be light;
The blessing of cancelled meetings, so you may have extra hours;
And the blessing of clear vision, so you may do what delights you.
