Worship and Faith: Developing our Faith
United Church Dorchester lives to celebrate together and share the love of God.
By seeking personal and spiritual growth for ourselves and encouraging others, we can develop our faith together.
We engage with various fellowship and prayer groups to make this happen.
Our Fellowship Groups offer a time to pause and reflect, and the opportunity for important discussion about Christian life in the modern world. They also offer welcome opportunities for social meetings with fellow church members: meetings are informal, and are held either in members' homes or in church rooms. The exact number, make-up and purpose of the groups changes and evolves over time.
Prayer Chain - we welcome new members to join this Ministry of Prayer, which you may share from your own home. If you would like a prayer for yourself or others please contact our Prayer Chain coordinator (Penny Fennell).
Prayer in the Community - three prayer groups meet monthly around Dorchester. They are intended for local residents and are open to Christians from all churches. They meet in people's homes in Castle Park, Poundbury and Brewery Square: if you would like more information about when and where they meet, please contact the Dorchester Baptist Church office on 01305 262045.
The aim of the group is to share environmental issues from a Christian viewpoint - how we can best understand, enjoy and care for God’s creation. Meetings are held on an occasional basis
We also have representatives on the Ecology Group of Churches Together, which meets three or four times a year.
