Welcome to the website for the united benefice of Ashburnham with Penhurst. Here you will find information about our churches, and the events and activities which are part of our church and village life. Our desire is to know, love and to follow Jesus Christ in our homes, our church family and in the communities where we live and work.
Our aim is to be a church that is accessible to everyone, wherever they are coming from, and to be a place where people can experience healing and restoration. We want to provide the opportunity for all to grow in faith and commitment to Jesus Christ whatever their age.
We have one service each Sunday at 10.30 am.
Our services are informal yet orderly, often following the liturgy of Common Worship. We seek to be led by the Holy Spirit. All members are given the opportunity to share what God is doing in their lives if they wish.
From 2nd May 2021 we will hold our Sunday morning services in St Peter's Church at 10.30am.
These will be run according to Government and Church of England guidelines: masks must be worn, social distancing observed and no singing is permitted.
There will be sanitiser and track and trace information as you arrive.
Everyone is welcome!
The church building is open for private prayer every day. Please follow the guidelines to keep everyone safe from the risk of infection.
At St. Peter's we often join with friends at Ashburnham Chapel for shared services and events. To contact them and find out lots more about The Chapel see their website here
