About St Faith's Church Havant
Right in the very centre of Havant, this Church is dedicated to St. Faith, the girl martyr of Aquitaine.
There has been a church at this location for 900 years, and there is a history of the Church on the St Faith's website

The Hall has level access for wheelchairs via the West Door.
There are no wheelchair-accessible toilets at the moment.
Although the Church has some large pillars, it can seat 150 with excellent visibility - just the right size for everyone to see and hear!
As with many of our Church Concerts, people have been known to bring a small cushion for the pews!
