RBE North Gosport is a new and exciting way for the Church of England to serve the communities of north and west Gosport. We can't wait to meet you.


You are welcome here

We are a church for the communities of Rowner, Bridgemary and Elson.

Welcome to the Parish of Rowner, Bridgemary and Elson! We are based in Gosport on the south Hampshire coast.

RBE North Gosport is based in three church buildings – St Mary’s in Rowner, St Matthew’s in Bridgemary and St Thomas’ in Elson – from which we serve our communities in Jesus’ name. The three parishes were merged in early 2020 and RBE created as a new parish. This marks an exciting new chapter for the mission and ministry of our churches. You are welcome to join in!

We have a mixture of church traditions in RBE and you will experience different ways of gathering to worship God together. But we all share a common heart: to love and serve our communities in Jesus’ name and see the difference the message of God’s love in Christ makes.

Since becoming a single parish, we have been linked with neighbouring Crofton Parish, which acts as the ‘Resourcing Church’ for the new chapter in our story.

You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill.

Matthew chapter 5, verse 14. The Bible.
