We are in the process of joining the West Purbeck Benefice WPB (Wool with Bere Regis and Affpuddle). The period of public consultation will run from 27 July until Mon 14 September. Full details can be found on the church noticeboards or by contacting the Churchwarden or Church Secretary (details below). The legalities of the amalgamation are expected to take 3-4 months but, during that time and within the COVID restrictions, Sunday services and baptism, marriage and funeral services will be provided by the WPB clergy team, which is led by the Rector of Holy Rood in Wool – Revd Carol Langford.
She can be contacted on 01929 462215 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Please contact members of the Church Committee in case of need:
Services, both live in churches and virtual over Zoom, are now well-established across the West Purbeck Benefice. A service of Holy Communion will be held in St Nicholas church on the third Sunday of each month at 9am. Holy Communion will also be celebrated at 9am in two churches in the Benefice every Sunday – only a short distance from Chaldon. For details of these and other services in churches and on Zoom throughout the West Purbeck Benefice, please see the notice on the Village Website and church noticeboards.
We will continue to open our church for private prayer and for visitors as follows:
Sunday - From 8.30am until 13.00pm
Wednesday - From 1pm to 6pm
