Coming up soon: 


Sunday 22 September, 2.00 – 4.00pm: Sewing afternoon

Another opportunity to support girls in Kenya – the materials being created will help provide much needed resources for girls who cannot otherwise afford them. Someof the poorest girls in Kenya are being helped by this project, which supplies them with washable towels and pants, thus avoiding their missing school one week in every four. Schools identify those girls most in need, and they are given healthcare information when the towels are distributed.

Even if you feel sewing is not your thing, please come along and help with other activities that are critical to the production process!

Sunday 29 September, 3.15pm: Dorchester String Orchestra

An afternoon concert given by the local Dorchester String Orchestra, which is directed by Michael Moorsom as part of the range of music making opportunities organised by Dorset Rural Music School.

After the concert, there will be tea and cake and a retiring collection for Dorchester Opportunity Group, a pre-school facility for children with additional needs.

Saturday 5 October, 2.00-4.30pm: Advent Resources Afternoon

An opportunity for local preachers, worship leaders and anyone interested in worship to explore resources for Advent. Led by Debs Brazier, the afternoon will cover advent prayers, Bible study, advent music and creative ideas for worship. Refreshments will also be available.

Everybody is welcome – do come along for inspiration, ideas and a lot of fun. Please contact Debs Brazier for more information.


Saturday 19 October, 10.00am – 12.00pm: A Season for Change
