St Michael, Owermoigne

St Michael is a very special church at the heart of the beautiful village of Owermoigne.  

It has links with Thomas Hardy, not least as it's setting for The Distracted Preacher

We have 9.30am services - usually Holy Communion and occasionally Morning Prayer - on the first and third Sundays of every month and a 6pm service of Evening Prayer during the summer months.

Everyone is warmly welcomed.
