Saint Dunstan's Episcopal Church began in 1965 following a diocesan survey of Episcopalians living in Dover and Sherborn. Endorsed by the then bishop, The Right Reverend Anson Phelps Stokes, plans began to move ahead and worship services started in the summer of 1967. In September of that year, The Reverend Donald Winslow was appointed the supply priest to the newest mission of the diocese. In addition, after discussions with The Dover Church, it was agreed that the mission would rent space from its neighbor. This agreement solidified an important aspect of our corporate life, taking to heart ecumenical relations in carrying out ministry in and to the community. This practice of maintaining strong ecumenical ties continues to shape and foster our mission and ministry.
