Ashdon is a village on the Essex /Cambridgeshire border four miles north-east of the town of Saffron Walden, and All Saints Church has been serving the village community for more than 600 years (please see our history page). 

All the family are most welcome at any of our services, which are shown here. Our services are on the  second and fourth Sundays and from January 2023 Sunday services are at 9.00 am followed by refreshments in the Church Rooms. On the first and third Sundays, there is a service at St Botolphs in the neighbouring village of Hadstock, also at 9.00am. We serve refreshments in the Church Rooms AFTER services on the second  and fourth Sundays of the month, with a shared breakfast from 8.00am BEFORE our service on the fourth Sunday – all are welcome.

We are delighted to announce that our vacancy for the House for Duty Vicar for Ashdon and Hadstock is now being advertised and further details can be found here.

The other good news is that the gate to the church from Church Lane has been replaced and looks very beautiful.   With thanks to a generous benefactor and also the Friends of All Saints for their help with this.

Eastertide at All Saints was very special with our services starting with the Palm Sunday service led by the home team.   In Holy week Maundy Thursday was celebrated with a Tenebrae service starting with supper followed by a candlelit service.   On Good Friday, Hour at Cross and on  Easter Day we celebrated the day with our friends at St Botolphs in Hadstock.   

The building is open daily for private prayer or reflection and as a place of sanctuary, continuing to be available for the community as it has been for so many years. 

We are part of the Saffron Walden Ministry team, a group of 12 local churches .   For those unable to come to church for whatever reason, a variety of services available online from different churches.   See our Links page for the website for St Marys Saffron Walden.
