• Welcome to the Church of Our Lady, Queen of Martyrs, & St Ignatius

Welcome to the Pilgrimage Shrine of the Dorset Martyrs

Situated in the picturesque village of Chideock, on the Jurassic Coast, this Church is a place of great spirituality and inspiration and a Marian shrine.

The Church of Our Lady, Queen of Martyrs, & St Ignatius in Chideock is situated within the Parish of Bridport in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Plymouth. Our church is along a quiet country lane (North Road), about a ten minute, easy walk from St Giles Church and the Weld Memorial Chapel.

There is a parking area just beyond the entrance.


Thanks to lifting of the lockdown, masses at Chideock will resume on Fridays at 10am, starting 4 December. Vigil masses at 6pm on 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month will resume on Saturday 12 December.

Mass on Christmas Day will be at 10am. Unfortunately, to ensure social distancing, places have had to be limited to 40, and that number has now been reserved. For other Christmas masses in the area see Bridport parish website: bridportcatholics.org.uk.

The church will remain closed apart from mass times.
