Temporary Church Closure

It is with great sadness we are no longer able to hold Public Services and have had to close our Church Buildings





There are many opportunities to join us in services online in the Dorchester Team, the Diocese and also nationally


Details can be found on Dorchester Abbey’s website and our church’s ‘A Church Near You’ (ACNY) website.  Regular services are also broadcast on the TV and radio and there are prayers and other information on the Church of England’s or The Diocese of Oxford’s website. 


As we know advice is being updated all the time and current information will be posted to the websites.  However, it looks unlikely that churches will be opened during May and so currently no weddings or baptisms are able to take place either.  Funerals can be held at the graveside or at crematoria but with very strict limitations on numbers and following compliance with social distancing requirements. 


We are committed to keeping operational the 01865 340007 number for everyone to call and to answering / responding to calls quickly from that number.  If you know of anyone who just needs a chat, then let Rev Jennifer know on 01865 343302.


In these difficult and extraordinary times we continue to pray:-


Keep us, good Lord,

under the shadow of your mercy.

Sustain and support the anxious,

be with those who care for the sick,

and lift up all who are brought low;

that we may find comfort

knowing that nothing can separate us from your love

in Christ Jesus our Lord.


And in this Easter season the Church proclaims

‘Alleluia! Christ is risen;  He is risen indeed Alleluia!’
