Facilities and features



This is to the rear of the church main entrance.

Our Building

The East Window is a depiction from the Book of Revelation - the vision of St John The Divine of Christ seated in glory encircled with a rainbow; it was designed by Christopher Webb.
The West Window was designed by Hugh Easton who has his work in Westminster Abbey and Durham Cathedral. This window is a depiction from another vision from St John, The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse.

Our church is dedicated to St John The Divine and is set in the middle of lovely gardens, so it is known as "The Church in the Garden by the Sea". The building's construction from red sandstone began in 1899 and it was consecrated on the 17th October 1901. It is Grade II listed and has many beautiful features notably the Wareham Guild Altar and the alabaster pulpit and chancel rail.

Music and Worship

Our pipe organ is a two manual instrument original to our Edwardian built church. We are blessed by John our organist who makes the organ sing despite its age.

Our Wednesday 11.00am Holy Communion is said using the Book of Common Prayer.

Groups, Courses and Activities

Our toddler group meet on a Monday at 10.00am (unless its holidays) in our church hall down the road.
