Situated between Shaftesbury & Gillingham, Motcombe has a population of (approx.) 1500 with a thriving Community Shop and a CofE Primary School.  Village life is busy and friendly with many activities and organisations - the Methodist Church plays its part in making this a vibrant and welcoming place to live.  The church building is used almost every day and we are pleased to offer a home to a variety of local groups.
