Church of England Diocese of Salisbury Loders

Loders: St Mary Magdalene

Welcome to our Church!

The beautiful Church of St Mary Magdalene was the Priory Church from the 12th Century to the early 15th Century and the building remains mostly medieval.

The Grade 1 listed building and Churchyard is located in an idyllic setting in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Church has a magnificent peal of 6 bells and a renowned William Hill pipe organ.

In 2017 central heating, a servery and a fully accessible disabled lavatory were installed to bring 21st Century comforts to this ancient building.

The Church is open every day, and regular Sunday services are held, with local choir on the first Sunday of the month.
