This church is an integral part of Ashford. It is beautiful and, despite its changes over the past decade, I believe it is now better than ever before. It is welcoming and modern, moving with the times as churches need to. They also use it...More

A very lovely and peaceful church a few steps from the high street. Do look around the graveyard as there are some very interesting and endearing tombstones

Never went in but sure it great like the outside, good looking building, Tower is the best feature. Do go past it in my time in Ashford. I look from distance and know I close to town centre.

A beautiful Parish Church, I attended Christmas and Rememberance Sunday services at St Mary as a 1st Ruckinge Girl Guide. I always remember how beautiful the church was decorated and how many people packed into the church.
