Rector’s Welcome

The Beaminster Area team Ministry covers 50 square miles of West Dorset and shares borders with Devon in the Diocese of Exeter and Somerset in the Diocese of Bath and Wells. The Beaminster Team is made up of 14 individual parishes plus the chapel in the grounds of Mapperton House.


Our worship shows a wonderful variety of styles ranging from services from the Book of Common Prayer to the child-centred Messy Church, with music a vital part of our activities.


Joining me in the Area Team are Pioneer Priest Revd Jo Neary, partner priests, licensed lay ministers, and our team administrators. We are wonderfully supported by our lay pastoral assistants and lay officers.


We would be delighted to welcome you to one of our churches or maybe all if you can stay the pace.


Revd Canon David Baldwin, Team Rector of the Beaminster Area Team Ministry
