Welcome to All Saints Church, in the village of Ashdon, 4 miles north-east of Saffron Walden, Essex, UK.  All Saints’ Church has been serving our community for more than 600 years (please see our history page).  We meet every Sunday morning at 9:30am for our main service, and there other opportunities to get connected with the church family.

We have recently become a Local House of Prayer in the model developed by Ffald y Brenin, the retreat house in South Wales.  We seek to be a blessing to the village of Ashdon, in prayer and in every other way that Jesus leads us into.  These are the last words of Luke’s Gospel:

When Jesus had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them.  While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven.  Then they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy.  And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God.  (Luke 24:50-53)

'Light up a Life Memorial Service 25th November 2018

Join us to remember and celebrate someone special…

Christmas can be a very emotional occasion, a special season for spending time with friends and family, and for remembering those who are no longer with us. Their absence can be deeply felt, whether their death was recent, or if many years have passed.

Light Up A Life is our Christmas time celebration of everything that St Clare stands for – standing side by side with families from across our community in honour of their loved ones. Unique services will be held throughout our catchment area in November and December with carols, music, readings and refreshments, in the company of those who understand.

Our Ashdon event will be held at All Saints Church on Sunday 25th November at 4.00pm.

In Spirit and Truth
