Iwerne Valley Benefice

Celebrating Gods love in beautiful North Dorset...

Ultimately it's all about God and the new Spiritual life that he came to bring through his Son, Jesus Christ.  As Christians we have discovered that this new experience with God brings a richness to our lives that we have never found anywhere else.  That is why we worship, to celebrate God's wonderful gift to us and to say thank you for his love and faithfulness.

Being a Christian doesn't mean that we don't face times of difficulty, sickness, struggle or bereavement, but it does mean that when these things come, we can rely on a strength greater than ourselves to help us through difficult times, even when we don't understand and life feels unjust and unfair. There are many of us within the benefice who have first hand experience of how our faith and this new spiritual life have brought tremendous comfort and we are happy to share this experience when others feel it would be of some value to do so. If you would like to know more then please contact our Vicar the Revd David W John and he will be happy to visit.

We also would like to provide the opportunity to invite people to discover this new life from God for themselves.   Later this year 2019 the benefice will run a series of events designed to explain more of what discovering Faith and Spirituality means these will be led by the Clergy and will be advertised under the title Exploring Christianity' If you would be interested in joining these discussion groups please contact the Vicar.
