St. Nicholas Church

Welcome to St Nicholas Church

We are one of 7 churches in the West Purbeck Benefice. Revd David Chillman is the Associate Priest with special responsibility for East and West Lulworth, Winfrith Newburgh and Chaldon – known  as the Lulworths Parish. He and his wife live in the Rectory in West Lulworth and he carries out pastoral work on Wednesdays and Thursdays and leads services on Sundays.

We are delighted that in early April Revd Canon Richard Bartlett assumed the post of Vicar of Wool and priest-in-charge of the West Purbeck Benefice, of which the Lulworths is a part. He now leads a team which also includes Revd Sandra Williams and Revd Jenny Alidina. The Benefice Office can provide details of services and how to get in touch with the clergy about pastoral care, baptisms, marriages and funerals. E-mail Sue Sharp westpurbeckoffice@gmail.com or 07729 484866      

A service of Holy Communion will be held in St Nicholas church usually at 9am on the third Sunday of each month. For full details of the regular services within the Lulworths

Parish and the wider West Purbeck Benefice, please open the Services tab on this page. 

       St Nicholas church is opened every day for               private prayer and for visitors.
