The churches of All Saints and St Agnes serve the West Wight communities of Freshwater and Freshwater Bay.
Whilst there are two churches in the one parish, the congregations act as one witness, committed to serving the community in love and prayer and worship. A warm welcome is extended to parishioners and visitors alike. You’ll find more about each of the Churches via the links above and a map at the bottom of each church page.
“Listen, I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with me”

The Reverend Leisa Potter is Team Vicar for the West Wight with responsibility for the Parishes of All Saints and St Agnes Churches, Freshwater; St James Church, Yarmouth and Christ Church, Totland.
Leisa studied Psychology at Plymouth University and spent several years working in the care sector, before setting up and running a well regarded child care business. A big change came in 2011 when Leisa began her degree course in Christian Theology for Ministry through Exeter University and as part of her training for ordination found herself working with St Mary Magdalene Church, gaining valuable experience in running services and ‘Life Groups’ across a wide spectrum of ages and backgrounds, focussing especially on those people with particular needs – expressed through a range of addictions and other life issues.
Leisa was ordained in 2014 and worked as part of a team of 12 churches at Ottery, St Mary in Devon, mentoring and enabling leadership and skills for ministry and exploring lay and ordained ministry with all those called by God to serve in communities and churches.
Creative and contemplative worship for all people is a great passion, as is accessible worship, with an honouring of the traditional church.
