Everyone welcome!

Thank you for visiting our Ashbourne Baptist Church website. We're glad you're here!

Come and join us at one of our services - you will be made very welcome. We meet in The Empire Ballroom in Ashbourne, next to Sainsburys' at 10:30am and 6pm each Sunday.

We are a Bible believing Church made up of people from all walks of life and from different backgrounds who meet to worship God together. We believe that Jesus Christ, as our representative and substitute, shed his blood on the cross as the perfect, all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. His death and resurrection constitute the only ground for salvation.

Pastor Nathan Clarke

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, And whose hope is the Lord. Jeremiah 17:7

What is Christianity?

Christianity is pretty simple. It's all about one life, the life of Jesus.

He's the Christ. The King who God himself had promised to send, who would put everything right by setting up a kingdom of justice and love.

He's also the Son of God. God himself, entering the world as a human being.

Jesus proved who he was by what he did. He healed people. He calmed storms. He raised the dead.

By doing these things, the King was giving a glimpse of life in his kingdom. A perfect place, with no suffering, fear or death. It's the world we all want.

The Christianity Explored course

The Christianity Explored course gives you time and space to think through who Jesus is and why it matters.
