Sunday 19th March
World Church Sunday, 19th March, 10.30 a.m. service at the United Church Dorchester. Speaker Huw Jones will introduce our World Church Project for 2017: Virtual Doctors is a unique service, designed with rural Africa in mind, connecting remote healthcare workers in Zambia with a panel of medical experts in the UK who give diagnosis and treatment advice. As a result, patients are diagnosed more quickly and more often treated in their own communities. Huw will speak about this work and of his recent experience in Zambia during the morning service, and at a fundraising lunch to be held in the church hall afterwards.  All are welcome to attend either or both events: tickets for the lunch are available for a donation of no less than £5 by contacting Maria Jacobson
