Our mission: Loving God, loving neighbour
Bridport Team Ministry was formed 35 years ago from five separate adjoining parishes: Bridport with West Bay, Bradpole, Allington, Bothenhampton and Walditch. It now forms one single parish with five parish churches with their own District Church. Each of the churches makes its own distinctive contribution to the worship and work of the Church in the team area. The Bridport Team belongs to Churches Together in Bridport and District and, as a parish in the Diocese of Salisbury, seeks to play its part in the mission and ministry of God’s people in the town and area.
Everyone is welcome at our services. Sunday-morning times are:
St Swithun’s Allington (Low Mass)
St Mary’s Bridport (South Street)
Holy Trinity Bradpole
St Swithun’s Allington (Sung Mass)
Holy Trinity Bothenhampton
St Mary’s Walditch
St John’s West Bay
For times of other services, such as Choral Evensong and Wholeness & Healing, please click on ‘Services’ in the menu.
Churches in the Team have Mission Partners who work closely with the local congregation in their ministry and mission. The Team is also affiliated to Churches Together in Bridport and there is a special relationship between St Mary’s and the United Church. St Swithun’s and St. Catherine’s RC church also have a close relationship.
Bridport and its port at West Bay are noted for their history, scenery and year-round activities. The area is very popular with tourists, who enjoy the stunning scenery of the Jurassic Coast and the soft hills and woodlands around the Brit and Asker valleys. Locals work in the small light industries and businesses that have now largely replaced the rope and net-making that once dominated the economy.
Locals and visitors alike are welcome in our churches at any time. You’re very welcome to come to a service of worship, join in with a home group or just drop in for a look around or a quiet prayer.
