Welcome to the website for St James-without-the-priory-gate, Southwick and St Nicholas, Boarhunt

  • Welcome to the website for St James Southwick and St Nicholas Boarhunt, our two ancient churches, which are set in the beautiful Hampshire countryside, but are only a few miles from the M27 and the bustling Royal Naval town and Port of Portsmouth, and the market town of Fareham.

    We hope that you find within this website all the information that will encourage you to visit our Churches and villages, which are full of history. We have visitors from all over the world and local places, who are surprised that Southwick Church is open every day of the year, and that access to Boarhunt Church is so easy to arrange, by accessing one of the email addresses below.

    Worship at both churches has been regularly offered to God for a little under 1000 years, and we invite you join us at one of the services listed below, and on our calendar page. The calendar page will also show you all of our future events.

    We are currently in an interregnum and the Installation of our new Chaplain - Rev Simon Brocklehurst is on June 14th

    If you are unable to visit us then please do visit the website for regular updates, especially the photograph section, which will show you many of our enjoyable past events.

    Please do click on the Church Guides below for a viewing of Southwick and Boarhunt Churchs.
