The Church of the Holy Spirit became the Parish Church of this part of Southsea in 1958, the earlier Church of St Matthew being destroyed in the war.
It is our hope that everyone living within reach of the Parish Church in Fawcett Road will discover where they might come for worship and prayer, to have their weddings celebrated, their children baptised and their family funerals received by the Priest of their Parish.
If you are a member of the Church of England, living in this area, or if you are someone who needs help or advice, someone perhaps who is enquiring about Baptism, Confirmation, Matrimony etc; or if you would would like to learn more about the Christian Faith, then do please come along and meet us at your Parish Church.
We are all God's children and members together of the human family. All are to be respected and cherished: whatever your beliefs we ask your prayers to the one God and Father of us all.
The church has experieced an interegnum in the past 11 monthst, but we now look forward to the future with our new Parish Priest , Father Philip Amey,who joined us on the 26th February 2012.( See contacts,on this website.)
The people and Priest of the Parish of the Holy Spirit are in the care of the Bishop of Portsmouth. We belong to the worldwide Anglican family of Christians who witness to the One, Holy Catholic and Apostolic Faith of the Universal Church of our Lord Jesus Christ.
To our brothers and sisters of other Christian traditions, and to men and women of all faiths and of none, this Church dedicated to the Holy Spirit of God extends a loving welcome.
God bless our Parish.
Guide us by your Holy Spirit to give ourselves
in love and service to you and to all mankind.
