Our places are: St Mark's Church, Ampfield - St Denys Church, Chilworth - All Saints and St John the Baptist, North Baddesley. We are part of the Church of England.

We believe in a God who is creator, redeemer and sustainer

Belief in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit is at the heart of our faith.

Christians believe that Jesus is God’s Son. Jesus reveals God as our Father, and that God is accessible to us through the Holy Spirit.

First steps in faith

We believe that everyone should be able to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and decide whether they want to accept the offer of new life in God that Jesus makes possible. This page is about resources to do that.

Volunteer tidy up day in the grounds of the ancient church of St John the Baptist

Thanks to all volunteers who helped give the churchyard at St John the Baptist a wash and brush up this morning.

A sabbath rest: required for compassionate engagement in mission

I urge you to embrace the spiritual practice of rest and renewal for Jesus’ sake. Rest, relaxation, and vacation are not only God-given gifts; they are God-directed necessities. But then we must move from the Sabbath rest to the compassion and action of Mission in the world around us.

Implications for today: The death of John the Baptist

A sermon from Revd Victoria Ashdown: an urgent call to self examination of conscience, and to activity in the service of Christ. Inspired by the accounts of the death of John the Baptist in Matthew 6 and events current at the time of the talk surrounding the Middle East, and the visit of the President of the United States to the UK. 

Come into life. We are the Church of England in the communities of Ampfield, Chilworth and North Baddesley. Find faith, offer worship, and make the places we live better for everyone.
