The church was built in 1906 and is of a typical Victorian style. However whilst the worship area remains original, about 20 years ago the old schoolroom was demolished and replaced by a modern hall, which is now connected to the older part. This has given us a very useful modern set of premises, which are used for a range of church activities and are let to a number of other groups. The Ashby Youth for Christ team use one of the rooms as their office and base. A smaller room is set-aside as a permanent prayer room.
Access to the church is either from Burton Road, or from the corner of the Co-op car park, where you can park for free for up to an hour but note that you must obtain and display a ticket from one of the machines in the car park. It costs £1 to park for a 2 hour period.
Services take place every Sunday at 10:30am with online worship available through the National Forest East Circuit services on some Sundays. We have provisions for children.
Each Tuesday (except during August) we have an informal coffee morning from 10am to 12 noon. We’re very happy to welcome newcomers for coffee.
We are members of the local ecumenical Ashbychurches.org and provide support where we can for the many outreach activities offered by the various churches, including Lent Walk of witness, Holiday Bible clubs, Fairground Ministry, Foodbank and Christian’s Against Poverty. Also we support Burton YMCA through out the year.
The church takes a leading role in the local Open the Book team taking bible stories into 10 local schools on a monthly basis witnessing to over 1000 primary school children.
