Welcome to Dorchester Community Church
Thanks for taking the time to visit our website and hope you can make it to church sometime! – We look forward to meeting you.
During September and October, we shall be going through a new series looking at the book of Joshua.
Join us and listen online if you miss any of the teaching series.
Remember you can explore these when you come to Church on either Saturday morning, Sunday morning or Sunday evening. Come when is best for you, or to the style that best suits you, or to that which you feel you could invite your friends.
This Sunday Evening:
A talk entitled: Living water to a dying land
What does the Good News mean in the poorest parts of the world? How can we expect people to care about Jesus the ‘Living Water’ (John 7:37-39) when even mere water is so scarce? And what role does our Church play in being ‘a light to the nations, so that all the world may be saved’ (Isaiah 49:6)?
Jack and Claire will be sharing their experiences of living among Muslim refugees in the Sahara over the last 10 years: sharing their cultural blunders, their Biblical convictions, and challenging us all to be radical disciples for Jesus wherever we are.
This is a DO NOT MISS! you will be both excited and challenged! Sunday 13th at 6.00pm – all welcome

A prayer for Safeguarding Sunday 13th October
Grant us, Lord God,
a vision of your world as your love would have it:
A world where the weak are protected, and none go hungry or poor;
A world where the riches of creation are shared, and everyone can enjoy them;
A world where different races and cultures live in harmony and mutual respect;
A world where peace is built with justice, and justice is guided by love.
Give us the inspiration and courage to build it, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
