Welcome to St Mary's!
We are a friendly, parish church in the beautiful North Hertfordshire village of Ashwell.
Our main Sunday service is at 10:45am, and is a traditional Anglican Parish Communion on most Sundays. On the first Sunday of the month we have a more informal All Age Service, which we call Thank God it's Sunday. Our Sunday morning services are always followed by tea & coffee, and we greatly enjoy this time of fellowship and welcome! (An earlier Sunday service is available at St Nicholas' Hinxworth, at 9:15am).
We also have an evening service at 5pm each week. On the first Sunday of the month, this is Holy Communion, on the third Sunday it is a Sacred Space service and the other Sundays tend to be BCP Evening Prayer or Evensong, depending on whether the choir and musicians are available.
For those who would like to sit more socially distanced, seating is available in the south aisle and if you can't attend physically you can join us on Zoom on a Sunday morning, via our Zoom church

St Mary's is open every day, during daylight hours, so that you can visit our wonderful historic church and spend time praying in the beautiful space. The Ashwell Food Pantry is also available when the church is open.
