St John's Church, Alresford

On the 17th of August, 1898 the reconstructed Church of St. John the Baptist was reconsecrated by the Bishop of Winchester and reopened for divine worship. Extensive rebuilding under the direction of Sir Arthur Blomfield, the eminent Victorian church architect and Diocesan architect to Winchester Cathedral, was now complete. This beautiful building stands today as a tribute to his skills and expertise, providing New Alresford with a church worthy of its heritage.

Advent Reflections in difficult times
This season of Advent involves facing our fears, willingness to accept the dark so we can be reborn to do the work of peacemaking. We are all called to remember not only the risk of his birth but the call to let love risk being born in us.

The Risk of Birth,
There is not time for a child to be born,
with the earth betrayed by war and hate
and a comet slashing the sky to warn
that time runs out and the sun burns late.

That was no time for a child to be born,
in a land in the crushing grip of Rome;
honor and truth were trampled by scorn---
yet here did the Savior make his home.

When is the time for love to be born?
The inn is full on planet earth,
and by a comet the sky is torn---
Yet Love still takes the risk of birth.
Madeleine L’Engle
