The Church of St John the Baptist is Church of England and within the Diocese of Winchester.

Outside view of St Johns Church AlresfordIt has been the Parish Church of New Alresford since 1851. However, we know from the Domesday Book that there was a church in New Alresford soon after the Norman Conquest. Until 1851 it was part of the Parish of Old Alresford. St John's now forms part of the Arle Valley Benefice which is made up of the parishes of New Alresford, Ovington, Old Alresford and Bighton.

St John's serves the whole community of Alresford. It is there to meet the spiritual needs of the community which it does through a variety of ways: through the use of the church and its building and through the use of its John Pearson Hall....

Inside St Johns Church Alresford looking eastSt John's has a Church Hall (The John Pearson Hall) which is available to groups within the community. We are pleased to give a meeting place to Chatterbox (for mums and toddlers) weekly, as well as meetings for other age groups.

The Parish Office is in the John Pearson Hall and is open Monday - Friday from 10.00 - 12.00. The Office telephone is 01962 733545. Initial questions about Baptism, Confirmation, Weddings or Funerals: about the churchyard or about parish organisations should be addressed to the Parish Office. (01962 733545)
