Welcome to the Sherborne Deanery Website.
The Deanery is made up of some forty Church of England parishes and includes a splendid Abbey, an award-winning Friary and some wonderful Dorset ‘gems’ in beautiful rural locations. Each of the parishes are grouped into four benefices which are, from south to north – The Melbury Team, The Three Valleys Team, The Sherborne Team and the Queen Thorne Benefice. Recently a rural chaplaincy has been set up which seeks to serve the farmers and their families in this area.
The Bishop of Salisbury has encouraged his Diocese to maintain and develop a vibrant Christian presence in every community and our parish churches have very deep roots which allow this to happen. Christians are engaged in all facets of village and town life. As a Deanery we seek to support the Church in South Sudan in particular in the Ezo Province. We do this through prayer, fund-raising and, when circumstances allow, through visits from small groups.
If you are passing through or looking for a church in which to worship or settling in to a new home or setting up a business then do pay a visit to some of our local churches. There is a wealth of local knowledge and a warm welcome awaits. The church is more than the building - rather a network of diverse people who are on the move, seeking God in all aspects of life.
