Welcome to the Dorset South and West Circuit Website. We are the coming together of the former Bridport and Dorchester, Portland and Weymouth Circuits and comprise of 14 churches. Two of these, in both Bridport and Dorchester, are united churches partnered with the United Reformed Church. Two, in Broadmayne and Tolpuddle, are in Covenant with the Anglican church. The rest of us work ecumenically also.
We have been getting to know each other over many years and have decided that we are better together as we can be a more effective witness and presence in the South and West of Dorset, but with island, seaside, heritage and county town churches we are all very different.
We seek to show the love of God wherever we are as we are able and would be pleased to hear from you and help where we can.
For he is our peace; in his flesh he has made both groups into one and has broken down the dividing wall, that is, the hostility between us. He has abolished the law with its commandments and ordinances, so that he might create in himself one new humanity in place of the two, thus make peace. (vs. 14-15)
