St Peter's Church Choir

St Peter's has a fine, active church choir, numbering around 25 members. It plays a central part in worship, leading the singing of the congregation and contributing week by week from its own wide and expanding repertoire of choral works from the renaissance period to the present day. 

We believe that everyone who is interested in singing in the choir should have the opportunity to do so - adults, young people or children - no matter what level of experience they may have, and there are no auditions. However, the choir does strive for high standards, and professional training is provided in regular rehearsals to enable the choir to maintain those standards, and individuals within it to grow in confidence and ability. Two choral scholarships are offered each year for young people aged 16-18. 

Rehearsals are held on Friday evenings and before the 10.30am Eucharist on Sunday mornings, which is the main service at which the choir sings. Other sung services include an Advent Carol Service, the Nine Lessons and Carols for Christmas, Christmas Midnight Mass and occasional funerals and weddings. During 2017 it is also planned to introduce a monthly Choral Evensong.

Munch Bunch Lunch Club

As St George's Church has a special connection with Manor Park School, we hold a club during Tuesday lunchtimes for children in years 1 to 4.

Contact: Mrs Hurlstone at the school.

St George's Dragons

St George's Dragons is the Sunday club for children aged 3+ at St George's Church.

The Dragons meet every Sunday morning during term time. They meet in the church at the start of the morning service (10:15) and then go to the church hall for their own stories, games and activities, before reporting back to the congregation before the end of the service.

The children can be picked up by their parents during coffee time after church - approximately 11:15am.

The children receive informal yet structured religious education, interspersed with games, craftwork, songs and prayers and any other activities the leaders can invent!

Occasionally, the children stay in Church for the whole service, such as Mothering Sunday, Easter, Harvest and Christmas. Our teachers are very experienced and they meet together regularly to plan and to review an exciting programme of activities and events.

We welcome new children at any time, whether it is for a one-off because they are staying with friends and family who attend St George’s, or on a more regular basis.

Fordington Fishes

This is a group for pre-school babies and children and their carers.

We meet on Friday afternoons during term time, 1.30 - 3pm, in St. George’s Church Hall.

Come along and join us for some fun with story time, songs, craft activities and lots of play.

The “big” people can have a chat while the “little” people play.

Refreshments are served for all.

We ask for a donation of 60p per family.

We look forward to welcoming you.

YP@D

Our young people are part of YP@D which is a youth group for the Benefice of Dorchester. We welcome any young person who is interested in Christianity and wants to come and joins us. The purpose of the group is to allow young people (who may not know many other Christians) to meet up and have fun with other young people who understand about being a Christian and going to church.
We join in a variety of activities:
Film Nights
Music workshops
Fund raising activities like a Car Wash or a Cream Tea
Days out (we recently visited Hilfield Friary)
Drama activities
Bingo Nights
Art and craft workshops
We meet every Sunday evening during school term time 7pm-8:30pm at St George’s Church Hall.
