New to Canford

New to the church or the area? If so, welcome!

Please do check out our website to get all the information about what goes on at Canford.

We are an Evangelical/Charismatic Anglican Church near Poole and Wimborne and partner with two other churches in the area, the Lantern, Merley, and St Barnabas, Bearwood.

Our aim is to become the kind of Church described in the New Testament; committed to following Jesus, strong on its biblical roots and compassionately serving our community. We try to do this through relevant teaching, passionate worship, and openness to the Holy Spirit, honest relationships, committed prayer, and compassionate care of those in need.

So whether you’re someone who’s just starting out and asking questions about life and God, or you are a committed Christian who wants to go deeper in your faith, why not come and try us out?
