St Aldhelm's is the Parish Church for Branksome, Poole, Dorset, Uk. We serve all members of our community regardless of their background and we really try to live the Christian message of friendship, love and forgiveness.

We fully understand that for most people the first few visits to Church can be somewhat daunting as you may not know anybody and may well be unfamiliar with the service, what it signifies and what your part in it is. That is why we are proud of our "no pressure" environment where you can take things at your own pace.

If you are new to the area or are interested in finding out about what goes on then please do make some time to visit us. You will meet a wide range of people from the youngest toddler through to people in their nineties. These people are just the same as you and they come from every conceivable background.

If you have children then please feel free to bring them with you, they are welcome at every service. They are not expected to stay in their seats and be silent and if you would like to have them with you in Church they are welcome to stay in the play corner. For the older ones we have a lively Sunday school and for the toddlers there are crèche facilities available.

Whilst we do place a great emphasis's on the next generation, we do not forget the present and the previous ones. We believe that everybody has something to offer and that is why their are no age barriers at St.Aldhelm's, all activities are open for everybody.

As well as the regular Church services, throughout the year there are lots of activities that are organised by the congregation. These range from the mentally and physically challenging to just having fun with like-minded people.

St.Aldhelm's Church is a friendly and welcoming place, which offers companionship to all, bringing people together to worship God and Jesus in a lively and interesting way. Take the time to visit regularly and it will add a new dimension to your life.
