WelcomeVisitor Information

Wimborne Minster and the Northern 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 - to continue that work, 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.

Silent Film with Live Music

The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog (1927), a famous silent feature directed by Alfred Hitchcock, will be shown in the Minster Church of St. Cuthburga, Wimborne at 7:30 PM on Saturday 9th February. Well-known local musician Sean Tucker will provide live music on the Minster organ to accompany the screening.
The Lodger is not the first film directed by Hitchcock, but it is the first ‘Hitchcock film’ in that it contains all the elements of his signature style: suspense, murder, staircases, and blondes. It is also the first film to include a Hitchcock cameo.
The programme features a short introduction and includes an interval, when refreshments will be available. Tickets are £10 each, including a free glass of wine, £5 for children 16 or under or those on state benefits. There is a special family ticket for £20 and the evening should end at around 9:20. Advance tickets are available at the Minster Shop (inside the Minster) and from Square Records in the High Street. They will also be available on the door on the night. All proceeds in aid of Minster funds.
