Wareham's Church of
“God is light; In him there is no darkness...”
[1 John 1:5]
Welcome to the churches in our Wareham Church family, within Dorset’s beautiful Isle of Purbeck - each with its own distinctive style and liturgies. Together, we celebrate the light of Christ as we share the peace, harmony and assurance that he offers.
Our five churches are:
The Priory Church of Lady St Mary, Wareham
St Martin on the Walls, Wareham
Sandford St Martin’s Church
St Nicholas Church, Arne
St John the Evangelist Church, East Holme
Our Parish Vision
Our vision is to show God’s love and make Jesus known in our community. We seek to do this by growing as disciples of Christ, reaching out in the power of the Spirit to serve those in need and feeding on God’s word as we share in fellowship together.
During the Covid-19 pandemic our services and activities have had to be curtailed. We hope that this difficult time will soon pass but, in the meantime, please refer any questions to the Parish Office.
Due to the easing of the Covid-19 guidance we are able to provide a Sunday weekly service in our Parish Church Lady St Mary and a midweek service at St Martin on the Walls, please see are News and Features page for all information. Our weekly YouTube services can and will in the near future, still be accessed by clicking on Youtube Wareham's Church of England Family or for the price of a local call the same service can be heard on the telephone by dialling 01202 078008.
