The Benefice of
Eggardon & Colmers
Welcome to the four parishes of Askerswell, Loders, Powerstock and Symondsbury
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever
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 a Designation Area of Outstanding 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
We hope you enjoy exploring our website
