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.

Safeguarding Sunday is on Sunday 19 November. Join our congregations at St Mark or All Saints as we hear readings, sing hymns and explore what safeguarding is.
There is no midweek Communion at All Saints on Wednesday evening and there will be Morning Prayer rather than Communion at St Mark on Tuesday morning."
An obituary notice.

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 organising or hosting various activities. 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.
