About Ashburnham Christian Trust

“Ashburnham Christian Trust is a gift. We aim to be a catalytic community who seek to serve and resource all whom God sends our way, so that Jesus’ kingdom of love increases locally, nationally and beyond.”


We believe Ashburnham Place and its people are a unique gift.  We are given to exploring and meeting the needs of the Body of Christ and wider communities today, particularly as it is positioned in and through all sectors of society.  We are setting our course before God to living as a vibrant community that provides excellent hospitality and care to all our guests.  We believe that we can become a connecting place and a hub that resources groups and individuals to be radical and bright through all of life.  We want people to be impacted as they come in amongst the community here and that we will impact as we go out to serve and minister.  Our desire is that people will come to Ashburnham Place and find exceptional levels of welcome, refuge, challenge, inspiration, learning and peace

Five Core Areas

ACT will be a gift by providing learning, connection times and forums that equip the Body of Christ to be salt and light in all areas of life. As a community we will seek to practically love those on the margins.

ACT will be a gift by embracing a culture and lifestyle of prayer, both personally and, corporately; prayer will be strategically focussed, locally, nationally and internationally.

ACT will be a gift by providing life changing volunteer programmes that equip volunteers from all walks of life, many nations, and of all ages to be gifts in society. 

ACT will be a gift by stewarding the buildings and 220 acres of gardens, woodland and lakeland as a place for people to meet and experience God through the beauty and shalom of his creation.

ACT will be a gift by providing a space for individual and group retreats. Through a warm, loving welcome we hope restoration and renewal will take place, better equipping the church for serving in society.
