There are services every Sunday at Dorchester Abbey:

10.30am Sung Eucharist Service (except for 5th Sundays, when we have a Service for the whole Dorchester Team in one of the Team churches)
1st Sunday: Morning Service (no communion, visiting speaker)
3rd Sunday: Family Service
5pm Evensong (3rd Sunday only)

We hold 8.15am Morning Prayer on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
On the second Tuesday of the month before Tuesday coffee we celebrate a short communion service.

All faiths are welcome to worship with us and any who would take communion in their own faiths can take communion in our services.  We encourage people of all ages to the communion rail for a blessing.
