Beaminster Area Team is a team of 14 churches in rural West Dorset. Our largest church is in Beaminster, a town with schools, library, shopping, cafes, pubs, Children’s Centre and lively sports clubs.  Our smallest churches are in villages with populations of 70.  We are set in the beautiful West Dorset countryside with easy access to the coast with excellent walking, cycling and water sports on the doorstep.
