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.

In September 2018, we shall be joining with our neighbours in Portland and Weymouth to form a new Circuit - and a new website will be created as part of this process.  For the time-being, please use the contact details below if you need to get in touch with us.
