The Parkstone United Reformed Church
Parkstone United Reformed Church is situated in Lower Parkstone along the main (commercial road) leading down to Poole Park, the Civic Center, Town Center and of course the Harbour.
From the outside, although a noticeable building built in the late 1800's. The external view hides its true splendour and the maze of wonderful rooms, halls, gardens and facilities. But of more consequence of course is the beautiful main Church with its wonderful Stained Glass windows facing you; either as a member of the congregation, or reverant service. Not forgetting the classic Organ to the right of the stage.
More important is the amazing atmosphere and the relaxed feeling of calm, peace and comfort within the hall and the Church as a whole. The Parksone United Reformed Church are in partnership with St Peter's Church Parkstone, with whom we have a formal Covenant as a Local Ecumenical Partnership.
Extremely active within the Lower Parkstone and Poole area the Church is well known as a friendly meeting house and support location to many local groups and organisations – both Faith Groups and Community Groups – from the Poole Passion Play, Bournemouth Orchestra’s and Dance Show Rehearsals.. to humble local Art workshops.
