The parish church, although considerably altered during the 19th century, maintains its harmonious relationship with both the village and the surrounding countryside, much as it did in medieval times. The font is of late 12th or 13th century date, indicating that a church has stood here since at least that time, but various parts have been partially or completely rebuilt at different periods.
Burstock St Andrew 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.
