Welcome to the Winterborne Valley and Milton Abbas Benefice website. We hope you enjoy exploring this website and come and visit us soon.

*Our congregations are friendly and come from a wide variety of backgrounds.

*Our worship is centred in six beautiful rural churches

*Our mission statement is to 'Make Christ Visible' in our communities and beyond. 


We have weekly coffee shops in three of our churches where many of the community come for coffee, cake and conversation. They are great places to meet people. We want to offer a welcome to all who wish to explore or further their Christian faith. You can bring your doubts, questions and struggles and, hopefully, find encouragement. 


Please do not hesitate to contact us for any further help you may require. We look forward to welcoming you.
