About us

We are six village Churches in rural Dorset offering a variety of events and services to our communities.

We have strong links with our local Church school, the Dunbury Academy, and a good relationship with Sturminster Marshall First School.

Do get in touch or come and visit us - we look forward to welcoming you in person!
