Parish website

We are a Parish of 5 Anglican Churches: St Aldhelm’s, St Ann’s, St John’s, St Mary’s and Emmanuel. This makes up the Parish of Radipole and Melcombe Regis in Weymouth, Dorset, UK; in The Diocese of Salisbury, in The Church of England.


Here’s the idea. It’s really quite simple: To make cheap healthy meals for you and your family.

Maybe you are put off the thought of cooking from scratch. After all, not everybody has the skill to do this. Some people may have lost the knack, others never had or even needed it. So a group of us, who all enjoy cooking, got together and started the cooking workshops to help people make meals in a friendly setting where we were all in it together.
