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.
