Coming up soon: 


Monday 18 April – Sunday 21 April: Easter Services and Events 

The United Church Dorchester invites everyone to a series of services (including the Walk of Witness on Good Friday) that lead up to one of the most important days of the church year - Easter Sunday. Some of these are taking place at the church, while others are taking place across Dorchester.

Don’t forget two other forthcoming events for Easter: the Journey to the Empty Tomb at the United Church (in South Street, Dorchester), and Easter Forest Praise at the Surestart Children's Centre (next to Sunnydays Nursery in Poundbury) - see below for further details.


Monday 15 – Saturday 20 April, 11.00 – 3.00pm: Journey to the Empty Tomb

Join us at the United Church Dorchester, on an interactive journey to the heart of the Easter Story – a time to reflect on the true meaning of Easter.

Everyone will be made very welcome: this is an opportunity to reflect, respond, and take something with you.



Thursday 18 April, 10.30am - 11.45am: Easter Forest Praise

Family-friendly fun, relaxed play and praise at the Surestart Children's Centre (next to Sunnydays Nursery in Poundbury) - children, parents and carers are all welcome: for more details, please see the News page.

Although this is not an event taking place at the church, it is organised by members of the United Church Dorchester.
