Welcome to Cove Parish

You are warmly invited to join us in Cove Parish, a vibrant and friendly Anglican community of two churches in Cove, Farnborough, Hampshire. We offer a variety of worship events every week, including three Sunday services at 9:00 am and 10:45 am at St John’s, and 10:30 am at Christ Church. We also have a weekly Communion Service at 10:00 am on Thursdays at Christ Church. For more details of each service, please click on the button below.

You can also watch our 10:30 am service live on our Facebook and YouTube channels. We hope to see you soon!

Double Birthday Celebrations

This summer in Cove Parish we celebrate the significant anniversaries of both of our church buildings, Christ Church’s has its 90th Anniversary and St. John’s Church its 180th Anniversary. So on Sunday 9th June we are having Cove Parish Party to celebrate this DOUBLE Birthday, which will be the center point of our celebrations and fund raising. 

The Bishop of Dorking will be at our 9am and 10:30am services, which will be followed by a fun afternoon with BBQ and family entertainment at Christ Church for everyone in the Parish.


Community Activities

Farnborough Foodbank

We are delighted that Farnborough Foodbank is now part of Cove Parish; the two charities are merging. 

The Foodbank trustees approached us to see if the Church could take on the governance of Farnborough Foodbank. After prayer and due diligence checks, we are pleased to announce the PCC has voted unanimously in favour of adopting Farnborough Foodbank. 

The operations, distribution centers, and warehouse will remain unchanged; it will still be called Farnborough Foodbank and come under the Trussell Trust.

Becoming part of Cove Parish means that the Foodbank can continue to be there for those in crisis, giving emergency food supplies. We hope this will connect the Foodbank to the other ministries we offer across the parish. We are also looking at increasing the support and provision we offer people who come to the Foodbank for help. 

We want to continue to work with other Churches and voluntary organisations and in partnership with the local community to stop hunger in Farnborough and beyond.
