We are one of a small group of six country churches seeking to serve all in our communities. We welcome all to the services in our benefice. Baptised and communicant members of other Trinitarian churches are welcome to receive Holy Communion at any of our churches. Others, including those prevented by conscience of the rules of their own church from receiving Holy communion, are warmly invited.


For uptodate service times please refer to the benefice home page:


For help with family or local history, free access to Ancestry and access to a thousand years of original local records, visit the Dorset History Centre, or search their catalogue online.
