The Benefice of Sherborne Abbey with Castleton, Saint Paul's, Sherborne, Lillington, Longburton and the Gryphon School.
" To know God and to make Him known in wonder, love and praise."
Rev'd Martin Lee
Rev'd Jim Edie
A warm welcome awaits you at the Abbey. Founded by St. Aldhelm in AD 705, the Abbey has developed from Saxon cathedral into the worshipping heart of a monastic community, and finally, to one of the most beautiful of England's parish churches. For many it is still the 'cathedral of Dorset', and our Benedictine heritage lives on in the daily offering of prayer and praise.
If you have never visited the Abbey, we hope that you can do so soon. Marvelling at this glorious building, may you also catch a glimpse of the Glory of God - so that, having arrived as our welcome guest, you will leave renewed, as a pilgrim.
CASTLETON - St Mary Magdelene
Since Norman times, a church has stood where St Mary Magdelene's stands today in Castleton. Sir Walter Raleigh demolished the original and built a very inferior alternative. The current building was finished in 1714 thanks to the 5th Lord Digby.
GRYPHON - St Pauls
St Paul's is a lively and growing evangelical, Anglican church for all ages. Since 2006 the main Sunday service takes place in the Gryphon School but there is also a wide range for both young and old, many of which happen in the church building in St Paul's Close. We believe that faith isn't just for Sundays and that God is interested in - and wants to be involved in, the whole of our lives.
LONGBURTON - St James the Great
A warm welcome awaits you at this friendly, family orientated, inclusive church. We are situated in the village of Longburton, just 3 miles from Sherborne on the A352 Dorchester road. Our mission is to share the gospel with others in a more relaxed atmosphere, within the liturgy of the Church of England.
LILLINGTON - St Martin of Tours
St Martin of Tours, Lillington is a beautiful country Church, set on the north-west edge of the renowned Blackmore Vale in Dorset. It is within four miles of Sherborne, with which it has been linked since the Doomsday Book (1086 AD).
