Pet's Service

at St Thomas's Church Melbury Abbas

Come to our outdoor pet friendly service to acknowledge your pet in your life and for you both to praise God and receive a blessing. You don't have to have a pet to come, just a love of God in creation.



'The Great Get Together'

This Sunday
2.30pm to 5.30pm

In a time of uncertainty, come together to say "there is more that unites us than divides us". A Free Vintage Tea Party in the Grounds of St James church. Lovely teas in pretty china; games for children; face painting; light music and things of interest on display.

This is a countrywide initiative launched by Jamie Oliver and The Duchess of Cornwall to celebrate the life of murdered MP Jo Cox. A chance for Church and Community to get together and to send the message that there is more that unites us than divides us. Come to enjoy and just be together. More info: Philippa 01747 812365 or
