St. John’s, West Bay

August 22, 2017

St. John’s, West Bay, Dorset


St.John’s is a relatively modern church, only dating from 1936. It is right at the heart of the small and increasingly popular community of West Bay. It is open every day although it could probably do with a sign outside to direct people in.


It is a lovely little church with a definite nautical theme! – as befits the situation it is in next to the small harbour. I counted 44 entries in the visitors book this month so far. There is an open Bible and lots of ship models about. A ‘Fisherman’s Mission’ display is well thought out.


A pebble pool can be used for prayers…


But there could do with being somewhere for people to leave prayer requests. The church website is at and visitors are welcomed and acknowledged as being important.


This is a wonderful little church in a great spot.
