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.


 St Peter's Church, Ashburnham

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. A creche for under 5's is available on hte secondm third and fourth Sunday of each month


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.


Our services are being held with no restrictions although we encourage you to wear a mask.  There will be sanitiser  as you arrive.

Everyone is welcome!



Private prayer

 The church building is open for private prayer every day.  Please follow the guidelines to keep everyone safe from the risk of infection.
