CONNECT Fellowship Groups      


Fellowship Groups provide an informal opportunity to meet together around God’s Word, the Bible, to encourage one another, to pray together, to discuss or ask questions, and grow in Christian fellowship. Fellowship Groups are an ‘open door’ to anyone who wishes to come along - all are welcome! For details of           existing Fellowship Groups, including CONNECT (a mid-week Bible Study) please refer to The Post (our weekly Newsletter) or contact the Vicar.  






Prayer lies at the very heart of a Christian’s relationship with the living God and we want to encourage one another in the discipline and joy of daily prayer. We make sure it is a feature of our coming together as a church family each  Sunday (both through lay-led intercessions and a Prayer Ministry Team) and at our monthly Prayer Hour. The Prayer Hour currently takes place via zoom on the third Tuesday of each month between 7.30 pm and 8.30 pm. Please see ‘The Post’ for access details


An opportunity to pray together for local and global concerns and to give thanks for the way that God works amongst us. All welcome.

Why give to Ashburnham Church and Penhurst Church?

All the activities at St Peter’s Parish Church and Penhurst Parish Church are paid for by the generosity of those who attend. There's no central funding from the Church of England or the government, rather everything comes from those who give. Therefore, the cost of ministry (having a Vicar), children’s work, pastoral care, outreach, music, administration, heating and lighting, insurance and maintaining the buildings (the Church and the Church Hall) is significant.

The only way in which we can do all these activities is through church members and friends from the local community and beyond partnering with us financially to support these areas of ministry. Our motivation to give as Christians ultimately comes from the Lord Jesus, who has given everything for us: ‘For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.’


To make a one-off gift or to support the local church regularly please call: 01424 612324
