Eggardon & Colmer’s Benefice

Revd Chris and Julia Grasske

The Benefice of Eggardon and Colmers covers the four rural parishes of Askerswell, Loders, Powerstock and Symondsbury in the beautiful west Dorset countryside.   Its villages, hamlets and farms are all within an area designated for its Outstanding Natural Beauty.  

Within the four parishes are eight churches, each with their own unique character and history, serving the community as well as all the visitors to this picturesque corner of the County. Stronger together, the Benefice extends a warm welcome to everyone.


Congregations are very welcome to attend our church services.
