A warm welcome from the Rector

Welcome to our website, where I hope you are able to find a flavour of Ash church, the wonderful building, countryside and community in which it is set and the worship, work and fun which I warmly invite you to join us in.

The summer has arrived, holiday season is upon us and it is a time when we get the opportunity to enjoy fetes, festivals, picnics and playgrounds in the sunshine (we hope!)

We have just celebrated our Patronal Festival, giving thanks to God for the life of the church and the community it serves and thinking of St Peter and St Paul, the saints to whom the church is dedicated contemplating how their example can guide us today. We ended outside in the sunshine sharing cherries and cheese, a tradition whose origin seems to have been lost in the midst of time but no one seemed to mind, the food was delicious!

Do have a look at our newsletter, where you can find photographs and stories of our recent activities and check out the calendar which shows details of future events and services.

As you spend time this holiday season enjoying the beauty and wonders of our planet I encourage you to stop for a while and really take in the trees, the birds, the rustle of insects wings, the touch of the breeze on your cheek and marvel at this amazing web of life of which we are a part. Genesis chapter 2 reminds us, “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” let's all play our part in looking after God's creation, taking seriously our responsibility to protect and nurture the world, guarding it for future generations to enjoyment and flourishing.

Have a wonderful Summer.

God Bless … Rev Helen.
