The calling of the Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission.

The Bridport and Dorchester Circuit is part of the Southampton Methodist District (26/20), comprising the historic towns of Bridport and Dorchester and their rural hinterland, including the villages of the Frome and Piddle valleys as far east as Bere Regis.

We have formed a ‘Mission Partnership’ with URC Churches in Weymouth and individual Churches in the Circuit have strong links with Anglican and other local Churches.

Resident or visitor, young or old, committed Christian or seeker, you will be welcome at any of the Services and other activities listed on this website.  God’s love is for all.

For information about baptism, blessing, marriage or funeral Services in any of the Circuit Churches, please contact us at

If you are researching an aspect of local Methodist history, please contact us by email and we will pass your request to the Circuit Archivist.
Enquiries about baptismal/marriage registers should be directed to the County Records office as staff there are more likely to have the information which you need.
