Visiting DFC

Whether you’re exploring faith for the first time or already miles into the journey, we hope you'll be encouraged and enjoy our hospitality and lively worship.

We meet at 09.50 for coffee and start our meeting at 10.10 at The Thomas Hardye School, Queens Avenue, Dorchester.


A warm welcome awaits you and then some heartfelt worship songs led by a band, followed by a relevant talk. At the end of the service there is loads of time to meet new people.


We also have exciting programmes for Children and Youth running between 10.30 and 12.00.




Whilst our church is much bigger than a Sunday service, it still forms a vital part of our church life.

We know that it's not easy visiting a new church for the first time. You may feel nervous or unsure of what will happen. This section has been written to help explain what you can expect if you do visit us for a Sunday service.

We want to make visiting us an enjoyable experience. We’ve tried to design our Sunday services to make them accessible, whatever your background, including if you’ve never been to church before. About two thirds of the people who come along on a Sunday were previously not regular church goers.
