Farnham: St Laurence in Dorset

Farnham Church welcomes everyone through its door and is normally unlocked from 9am to 5pm (a yank on the door handle to the left will unlatch the door).  Visitors often regard this small church as a welcome sanctuary because of its simplicity, be it a place to pray or reflect, to consider its various styles of architecture or to investigate family history.  

St Laurence Church, Farnham is part of the Chase Benefice, Dorset and services are held according to the Benefice rota of services.
