Church of England Diocese of Salisbury Stoke Abbott

Stoke Abbott: St Mary

Nearby on Waddon Hill evidence has been found of the Roman occupation and there was probably a Saxon church on the present site. This is an ancient place, which was mentioned in the Domesday Book as belonging to the Bishop of Salisbury.

St. Mary's Stoke Abbott is part of the Beaminster Area Team Ministry which covers 50 square miles of beautiful rural West Dorset. The team consists of 14 individual parishes plus the chapel in the grounds of Mapperton House. Our worship shows a wonderful variety of styles ranging from services from the Book of Common Prayer to the child-centred Messy Church, with music a vital part of our activities.

Stoke Abbott

Every weekend we post a new recorded service for you to join in with. The service isn't live - so you can join in and follow in the service whenever it suits you. We tend to get these online on Saturday afternoon, and you can watch and take part any time after that. The website page features the video, an order of service for you to follow, and other external worship links from the BBC, diocese, CofE, and other sources.
