Welcome to our Catholic Faith Community
Sacred Heart in Hook is a beautiful Catholic Church located near Basingstoke, Hampshire. We are friendly, relaxed community and welcome people of all faiths, culture and status to join us.
Our mission is to live out our Catholic faith and through witness and example bring people closer to Jesus Christ through His Church. We are asked as parishioners to grow as “stewards” of God’s gifts and give thanks not only with our words and deeds, but by the way we celebrate our faith and live our lives. You can read more about how we align to our Diocesean Mission here
The parish lies at the heart of every community. Families, churches, schools, chaplaincies to hospitals, prisons. Our Parish provides an inclusive hub for people of all walks of life to journey together in faith and to reach out to the wider community to serve in acts of social action.
