Welcome to St Wilfrid's


We are the local Church of England parish for Cowplain and part of Horndean, near Waterlooville in Hampshire. We’re a welcoming church for all ages and stage of life. Whether you've always gone to church, or if you've never been before, you'll find a huge welcome and a place here that is perfect for you.

Our Sunday morning services are at 8am, 9.30am and 11.15am and are all followed by refreshments and plenty of time to chat.

There’s also lots happening through the week. Our Church is open every day for quiet reflection and prayer, so why not come and visit!

As Christians we believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He’s alive and wants to help us all through the ups and downs of life. Being a Christian is the best possible way of living!
