Welcome to the Shaftesbury Team Ministry

We are the Church of England in Shaftesbury Dorset, serving the community and serving Jesus where we are. The church is about people and faith and we know you will find a warm open welcome at all the churches in our team whether you are a visitor, a local or someone just looking for the deeper meaning of life.
You’re welcome.

We apologise that we are updating our calendar information so some church calendars may not display properly. We will have this fixed soon. (27 Nov 14)
