Our Three Valleys are situated in the heart of Dorset, to the south of Sherborne. We are an active and outward looking rural Benefice, thoroughly involved in the local communities we serve. We long to grow in faith and numbers and to support in prayer and practical care those among whom we live and work.
Our aim is to care for our local village communities and offer a place for Christian worship and friendship.
WHAT WE DO
While each worshipping community has its own character, we share common values of Christian discipleship and mission.
We comprise 16 Church of England parishes covering around 90 square miles with 17 church buildings and a friary.
A Wider Network
Seventeen beautiful buildings spread between three valleys.
Not only are we an active worshipping community but we are also the curators of seventeen beautiful parish churches with roots going back centuries. These buildings need constant love and attention, so we welcome the interest and active involvement of a much wider community from all over the world in supporting their care and upkeep.
