WelcomeVisitor Information

Wimborne Minster and the Wimborne Villages - Active Christian congregations worshipping in historic buildings set at the heart of our communities.

For over 1300 years Wimborne Minster has been a living centre for pilgrimage, prayer, mission and worship. In 2015, we joined with the villages to the north of the town - Holt, Hinton Martell, Horton, Chalbury and Witchampton. As from 1st July 2020 the benefice will be known as Wimborne Minster and the Wimborne Villages. The church of St James’ Holt has been closed for worship and all the villages have come together into one parish to continue the worship and work of God, and together we extend a warm and inclusive welcome to all who come through our doors. In our buildings you will find history and some significant treasures, but more than anything, they are places where people have gathered and encountered something of God's love; places (to quote T S Eliot) "where prayer has been valid". We hope you will come and discover that truth for yourself.
