Benefice calendar

We are pleased to announce that the Patron,  Piers Chichester, and the Bishop of Sherborne have appointed the Revd Lewis Pearson to be the next Rector of Winterborne Valley and Milton Abbas.  Lewis is currently Training Curate at St James’ Poole and brings much experience and gifts to the post, including working with children and young people; of creativity and outreach. The appointment is subject to the completion of Lewis’ curacy in June. Lewis feels very much called by God to this post and those involved in the appointment believe him to be the right fit for the benefice and at Milton Abbey, and we are looking forward to welcoming him, his wife Jo and their family sometime over the summer and to a licensing in September. Bishop Karen and Archdeacon Antony wish to thank all those who were involved in the appointment process.

Message from Lewis

Dear all,

Just a short message to assure you of my prayers for all in the benefice in these uncertain times. I feel very much drawn towards you all in prayer as we try and support the parish here in Poole.

We’re formulating a plan of support here and I did our first digital prayer/mediation/reflection online last night. Not for everyone I know, but we’re all trying to work this through on the hoof!

Much love and prayers







WWI exhibition.

We were able to get 10 silhouettes for the pews in church from the "There but not there" website. By each one was put the names of men from Milton Abbas who died during or because of the first world war. As the sun came through the stained glass window it reflected off the Perspex soldiers causing a very dramatic effect. People who visited over the 3 days of the exhibition sat alongside the men reading the information and were visibly moved by the affect."










Serving officer Tom, surrounded by his grandfathers equipment and medals, helps his aunt unpack the silhouettes.
