About the Catholic Parish of St Swithun Wells

The Catholic Parish of St Swithun Wells was inaugurated on 10th December 2010 – the feast of St Swithun Wells – and unites the Parishes of Bishop’s Waltham, Chandlers Ford, Eastleigh with Fair Oak and Romsey with North Baddesley.

The Parish brings together the six worshipping communities of Our Lady Queen of the Apostles in Bishops Waltham; St Edward the Confessor in Chandlers Ford; Holy Cross in Eastleigh; St Swithun Wells in Fair Oak; St Joseph’s in Romsey and St Andrew’s in North Baddesley – all of which were previously part of the Three Rivers Pastoral Area.

The new Parish covers the geographical area from Romsey in the west to Bishop’s Waltham in the east skirting the northern boundary of Southampton.  It serves in excess of 3000 parishioners across the six Churches in this central part of Hampshire which is part of the Diocese of Portsmouth.
