St Aldhelms

St Aldhelm’s is the lively Anglican Church at the heart of the parish of Branksome, Poole and we offer you a heartfelt welcome.

The church, made up of all parts of our community, provides worship, activities, ministry,  fun, friendship and love to everyone in the parish and beyond.

Wherever you are on your own faith journey, if you haven’t started or are not sure if you want too or what it means, St Aldhelm’s offers an open and friendly “no pressure” environment where you can explore and ask questions of and about God, faith and the church at your own pace.

By its very nature, this web site can only give a 2 dimensional representation of your parish church so we offer it to you in the hope that it will inspire you to visit one day to experience all dimensions of life at St Aldhelms.
