Lytchett Minster Parish Church BH16 6JE
and St Dunstan’s Upton, BH16 5JA 

Parts of the Parish Church date back to the fourteenth 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.
