Welcome to Saint Dunstan's Church in Poole
Welcome to the web site of St. Dunstan's Orthodox Church, Parkstone. We are a community of Orthodox Christians gathered under the pastoral jurisdiction and spiritual care of the ancient Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch, originally founded by the Apostles Peter and Paul (See Acts. 9:26). As a local worshipping community, we share the faith of the one, holy Orthodox-Catholic Church of Jesus Christ and are in full communion with the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople and all other local Orthodox churches, tracing their provenance and faith, unchanged, back to the Apostles themselves.
We proclaim this Christian faith as we have received it from the Holy Tradition of the Apostles. Calling all to repentance, we strive to live out our faith in the holy, consubstantial, life-giving and undivided Trinity. We seek the kingdom of God through the liturgical worship of the Byzantine rite, through prayer and the ascetic struggle and in the fellowship of the gospel, bearing one another’s burdens, till we reach the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.
We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our faith, and our life in Christ. We also invite you to join us on the Lord’s Day to experience the mystery of the gospel through the Orthodox Divine Liturgy as handed down from the ages. We worship on Sundays with Orthros (Matins) at 9.30am and The Divine Liturgy, served at 10.30am..
Our church building is a structure of considerable architectural interest and is owned by The Bournemouth-Poole Orthodox Christian Foundation (reg. charity 1140071).
