Volunteering with us

Since its earliest days, Ashburnham Place has been supported by volunteers from East Sussex, the UK and across the world. Today we continue to be dependent on the generous gifts of time, energy and hard work of volunteers from both near and far.

Day Volunteer Work In Garden

Each year around 80 young people from many nations come and join the community here as part of the Catalyst Programme. They serve practically and learn more about following Jesus.

We also have a valuable team of local volunteers who offer their time to help with the many tasks needed to ensure Ashburnham Place continues to be a gift to many.
