Parts of the Parish Church date back to the fourteenth Bronze Award awarded to St Dunstan's on 31st March 2020
century, and we are very fond of our buildings, but the real Church is people.

We are a mixture of different kinds of people, with our faith and failings. What we have in common is finding the Person and work of Jesus Christ life-changing.

'Thought for the Day' livestreams at 6pm as usual all this week on
Facebook or on our Thought for the Day page

HOLY WEEK arrangements on Holy Week Page

Image of the Daily Prayer booklet 30-3-20We have produced a PRINTED BOOKLET OF PRAYERS for use each day. There is a page for each day of the month.

It is particularly designed for, say, elderly people who have no easy access to the many online resources that are highlighted here and elsewhere, and who find technology beyond them.  However it is free to anyone who would like a copy.

Contact Howard in the first instance, and he will make sure you get a copy.  Or you could send him the name and address of someone who has asked for this prayer booklet, and we will post one to them.  When the Church Office is open again, the DAILY PRAYER booklets will be available there.                30/3/20

Howard's contact details are in the Church Directory
and his telephone number is on the news sheets

Facebook logoHilary does a daily livestream at 6pm on the church Facebook page. You can see it very shortly afterwards on our Thought for the Day page.  Or log in to Facebook at 6pm each evening if you want to see it live.


Using Zoom,, Hilary has set up a Lytchett Minster and St Dunstan’s “check in” space where, if you want, you can come at 12noon just to catch up with others from our church for half and hour or so every day except GOOD FRIDAY and Sundays.   It is free to sign up to Zoom but you will need the meeting ID and password or the meeting website address from Hilary.
