Welcome

We are a rural church a few miles outside of Dorchester, serving Charminster, Charlton Down & Forston. We meet in a beautiful 11th Century church in the heart of Charminster and you will be most welcome to join us on a Sunday. A loo and servery enable us to provide hospitality with Coffee & Tea at the end of the service. We have disabled access,  a hearing loop system and baby changing facilities.
