The United Church Dorchester

United in faith, united in action

Events taking place at United Church Dorchester


The United Church Dorchester has traditionally hosted many events for the church, supported charities and the local community. As we all work cautiously towards a more normal social life, please see below for information about events either returning or now planned to take place in the near future.

For all Services, please see the Diary

Please also see the Church Newsletter for other advertised events

Coming up soon: 

Saturday 22nd May, 11.00am - 2.30pm: Pentecost Family Funday

Come and have some fun while celebrating the Church's official 'birthday' - and, we hope, the gradual return of a more 'normal' life.

The event is FREE and there will be plenty to do, including painting, card craft and food decorating. There will also be baby changing and feeding facilities - perfect for young families who need a break somewhere.

Download the poster and either display or send it to your friends - the more people who know about it and come along, the more fun we'll have!


Fridays, 9.00am – 12.00 noon: Dorchester Country Market

Dorchester Country Market is re-opening! With the Corn Exchange still closed for renovation, the market will now take place every Friday morning from 9am until 12noon in the Main Hall at The United Church – please enter via the Charles Street Entrance at the rear of the building, opposite the Library.

Although its been a long wait, we are delighted to be hosting the Country Market: as their Facebook page said when the new location was first agreed, it was the location for the Market in the past, is perfectly located, and is big enough to allow for Covid safe trading.

Do come along for home made baked goods, preserves, plants and a huge range of crafts – all sold by the makers and producers at our local market.
