Who We Are

We are a team of twelve parish churches within the Church of England in the Diocese of Salisbury. Located in the South West corner of Dorset and a piece of East Devon, we include a mix of town, villages, hamlets & farmsteads. We cover an area of sixty square miles of beautiful coast and countryside along the Jurassic Coast and across the Marshwood Vale.

Our Mission Statement

To EXPRESS through the beauty of our lives, the practical caring love of Jesus
To CELEBRATE in our worship and common life our experiences of God's love
To SHARE the Good News of God's love in word and action in a joyful spirit


The leadership of the Golden Cap churches is entrusted to husband and wife  Revs Stephen and Jane Skinner. Stephen is team rector, Jane is team vicar. They are aided by a team of dedicated lay people and retired clergy.


We produce the Golden Cap Magazine on a monthly basis with news and views from around the region with details of all church services. The magazine can be obtained through the churches
