The Dorchester Community Church is a historic church building off NH 118 in Dorchester, New Hampshire. The vernacular Greek Revival church was built in 1828 on Thompson's Hill. In 1883 the church was moved to be adjacent to the town hall, at which time it was disassembled and rebuilt at a smaller scale. It is maintained by a community organization and continues to be used for services.[2]

The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980,[1] and included in the Dorchester Common Historic District in 1985.[3]
