Welcome to ACNB church

@acnbchurch is the Church of England worshipping community in the three parishes of Ampfield, Chilworth and North Baddesley. We commit to be peacemakers and reconcilers so that the light of God may be made visible in our local communities.

Sadly for us but excitingly for her, our vicar, Victoria, has moved on to pastures new. This means that we are in period without a vicar. Our main services continue unchanged but please bear with us as we navigate this period. We can still take bookings for weddings, baptisms and funerals but will need to make sure we can book someone to take the service.
Due to the rise in COVID cases, the carol service that was due to take place at St Denys on Sunday 19th has been cancelled and replaced by a carol service on zoom (see below).
The crib and carol service that was due to take place at St Mark on Christmas Eve has also been cancelled.
Other events are currently unchanged.
Please note that there is no 9:30am Communion on Sunday 26th December.

We are an inclusive and welcoming group of three communities following the example of Jesus Christ. Working together locally we seek to encourage one another to live the way Jesus taught

  • To worship God together and to faithfully embody His love for all people.
  • To prayerfully encourage faith and service.
  • To seek to learn and live a new life as a disciple of Christ.

We share our faith in the local community through

Across the villages we use and take care of four church buildings - St Mark in Ampfield, St Denys in Chilworth and All Saints and St John the Baptist, both in North Baddesley.

What’s on this week

Although most COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, we know that many of the restrictions we undertake are not for our own benefit but for the benefit of others. Therefore, although booking is no longer required, socially distanced seating is retained and from 10th December masks are once again mandatory in places of worship. Please see the updated COVID information for details. Please email joinin@acnb-church.org or contact us to request Zoom details.
