Who We Are


The Lantern is a lively evangelical charismatic Anglican church of more than 300 people on a housing estate north of Poole and south of Wimborne Minster. 


We are followers of Jesus Christ, open to the Holy Spirit and desire to grow in relationship with, and obedience to Him - and introduce others to Him by whatever means we can! We seek to be authentic with each other, live Biblical and prayerful lives and put our faith into practice in every area of our daily lives. 


We encourage everyone at the Lantern to:

  • Regularly attend church.  
  • Join a Life Group.
  • Give financially to God’s work.
  • Find an area in the life of the Church where they can serve. 


Just as each family is different, each church family has its own unique 'flavour' - so scroll down to discover our vision and values...
