It is with great pleasure that we have just re-opened our church building both for services and for private prayer. This is part of the easing of national lockdown following the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our new Vicar, Caroline, was licensed during lockdown and moved to the village in June. Her details can be found on our contacts page, together with those of our Churchwarden, Barbara Marshall.
Ashdon is a village on the Essex/ Cambridgeshire border four miles north-east of the town of Saffron Walden.
All Saints Church has been serving the village community for more than 600 years (please see our history page). It has seen pandemics before – it is likely that it was the Black Death in the 14th century that prompted a change in the layout of the village, with a move away from the church itself to the larger settlement down the hill.
We are now part of the Saffron Walden Ministry team, a group of 12 local churches. Many of the churches in the Team have now re-opened for worship, but to meet the needs of those at home, we are continuing to offer on line services via both Zoom and YouTube. More details can be found on our Church at Home page. Church members are also involved with the Parish Council and the Baptist Church in supporting vulnerable residents. Our Links page will direct you to websites for these other organisations.
We look forward to welcoming you to our church and to our services. Please keep an eye on changing opening times and services each month whilst the situation remains fluid.
May God bless and keep you.
