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

Hebrews 13:8

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
