You are visiting our website in extraordinary times, when our church is closed, along with all others in the country, due to the global COVID19 pandemic.
We have recently appointed a new vicar, Caroline Currer, whose details can be found on our contacts page, together with those of our Churchwarden, Barbara Marshall. Caroline’s move to the village will take place once current restrictions are removed.
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.
Now as then, we continue to serve the village community. As part of the Saffron Walden Ministry Team, we are still engaged in worship and prayer, putting services on line, and meeting through Zoom. 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 once the current situation is past. Meanwhile, do take advantage of the opportunities offered here to engage in worship and fellowship with us in different ways.
May God bless and keep you in these difficult times.
