This Weekend

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.

‘Britain Get Talking’

Is an ITV Mental Wellness campaign to help families get closer. Anxiety and depression in children have apparently risen by 48% since 2004. But talking and listening can build mental wellness, so hence the encouragement to tune back in to the story in our own living room.

During November and December we shall be focusing on prayer, so with the above initiative in mind that expresses the priority and importance of talking, we want to encourage more talking too, so as well as talking to one another let’s seek creative ways as to how we can step up on talking to our maker.  Maybe ask a friend to partner you once a week?  Maybe include prayer in a text conversation?  Maybe at the end of a family meal time give the whole conversation to God?

‘Church Get Talking’

Starts right here right now.  Try Praying.  May we be inspired as we discover what God’s people expressed years ago, in different places and at different seasons, as our new teaching series explores a whole range of prayer used in the Bible, in both Old and New Testaments. 

Sunday morning and evening will be a totally different theme too as you can see (below) and all teaching will be available on our website afterwards.

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.

It is good to remember... each year Dorchester hosts a very poignant service at the Cenotaph which is attended by around 1,000 people.  This year our Pastor was invited to lead prayers at the short service.  You can enter in to what was prayed right here...

As well as our remembering those who died and those who suffered, and those who continue to, can we encourage you to pray for those who were present at the Cenotaph, that maybe thoughts were triggered about our own lack of inner peace?  Or our undealt with conflicts within?  Or of the need for forgiveness?  Maybe for some this is likely to be their only experience for something of 'Church' on their calendar?

Pray that God might stir something within of the God who loves them and wants a relationship with them.  Thank you.

Pastor Roger Frapwell
