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.

We are delighted to welcome Revd Vanessa Lawrence as the new vicar of Ampfield, Chilworth and North Baddesley. Please join us at All Saints, North Baddesley for a welcome service at 6:30pm on Sunday 20 March.

Christ is risen! Happy Easter!

Please note that there is no Wednesday evening Communion this week. Tuesday morning Communion and Thursday Welcome Café are as normal.

As we have a new vicar and Covid restrictions have been lifted it is time for a new service pattern which starts from Sunday 24th April. This week’s services can be seen below and the overall pattern can be seen on the Worship Services page.

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.
