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).
After over a year and a half, we now have regular weekly services in church again, with no need for prior booking. All are Holy Communion, except for the third Sunday, when a simpler service is led by our Home Team. All are welcome.
For the moment, we are retaining some social distancing for the protection of all. We are delighted, however, to be able to sing hymns, although we do ask everyone to wear a face covering when doing so, although this is not required at other times. We are also now enjoying refreshments in the Church Rooms AFTER services on the third and fourth Sundays of the month, with a shared breakfast BEFORE our service on the first Sunday re-starting on 1st August. Again, all are welcome.
That building has remained open 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. It will continue to do so.
We are also part of the Saffron Walden Ministry team, a group of 12 local churches and have been delighted earlier in the year to welcome a new Rector amongst us – the Revd Jeremy Trew. For those unable to come to church for whatever reason, there will continue to be a variety of services available online from different churches. See our Links page for the website for St Marys Saffron Walden.
Our Vicar Caroline or Churchwarden Barbara will be happy to answer any queries you may have (contacts page).
