Welcome to ACNB church

ACNB is celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at the following events:

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.

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.

Find out about the adventure that Ian Wyllie, who used to worship with us, is embarking on.

Ian writes: Later this August, I’m going to start a long slow solo sail round the UK and Ireland. For those of you who remember me, that might be a bit of a surprise, as when I came to ACNB Church now nearly a decade ago I was in a really rough state. I’m grateful to all the churches in the group, to the prayers of many and to the Andrew Cassell Foundation who helped me, a disabled person, get back to independence on the water.
