Please also see the Church Newsletter for other advertised events

Coming up soon: 


Wednesdays in Lent, starting on 26th February, 12.00 – 1.30pm: Lent Lunches

This year’s Lent Lunches are being held in the United Church Hall every Wednesday, beginning on 26th February (last one on 8th April). Your £5 will secure a ploughman’s platter, choice of sweet and a tea or coffee.

The lunches will provide support to Christian Aid, so do come along to ‘Eat up and help out’!

Friday 6 March, starting at 10.30am: World Day of Prayer service

This year’s service in Dorchester will be held at 10.30am on Friday, 6th March, at the United Church Dorchester. The service will follow the worldwide plan, which this year focuses on Zimbabwe and its message: ‘Rise! Take up your mat and walk’.

As this date is within Fairtrade Fortnight, there will also be a Fairtrade stall in the foyer of the United Church: anyone attending the service will therefore be able to see and buy a range of Fairtrade goods.

Saturday 21 March, 3 – 5pm: DASP concert for Dorchester Poverty Action

Come along for an afternoon concert given by Dorset Area Schools Partnership musicians, to raise money for Dorchester Poverty Action.

Admission is free, but there will be a retiring collection with all proceeds directly benefitting local people in need.

Monday 23 March, 2 – 4 pm: Everyday First Aid for the over 65s

15 places are available for this free session run by the British Red Cross. It is designed to educate people to a basic level of First Aid, so that people know what to do if a First Aid incident arises within their home or social setting.

The course is interactive and will cover various First Aid scenarios. If you would like to attend, please contact Maria Jacobsen (see poster for details).

Saturday 28 March, 10.00am - 12.00 noon: World Church Easter Coffee Morning

Come and join us for coffee, tea, cakes and hot cross buns!

There will be stalls as well, selling home-made and unique crafts, books, cakes and biscuits, etc - so a good opportunity to get those special Easter presents organised. 

All proceeds to go Mission Aviation Fellowship, which is this year's World Church Project for the United Church.
