Our Churches

The Beaminster Area Team Ministry was established in 1979, and is part of the Lyme Bay deanery within the archdeaconry of Sherborne, in the diocese of Salisbury. The Team covers some fifty square miles of largely unspoilt and beautiful countryside in rural West Dorset. The peaceful area is well served for country pursuits, farming and other rural industry, and the arts. It is just a few miles inland from the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline, which offers excellent walking and opportunities for geological studies.

The town of Beaminster (population about 3000) is at the heart of the Team area and is surrounded by the fifteen villages and hamlets of the Team, most of which are served with their own church building. Alphabetically, these are: Blackdown, Broadwindsor, Burstock, Drimpton, Hooke, Melplash with Mapperton, Mosterton, Netherbury, Salway Ash, Seaborough, South Perrott with Chedington, Stoke Abbott, and Toller Porcorum.
