A nice walk around the outside and a nice church to visit.
Jan 2019 • Family
Waking around the church itself is really nice, it feels like you've gone back in time to a Dickens novel with the old looking houses.

Tranquil and beautiful
Aug 2018 • Solo
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 as a community centre, not just as outreach, but to ensure it is a living church and useful for the community, not just those who worship there.

I went - and the door was being shut
May 2018 • Family
The church is only iopen for a few hours a day. I discovered that when on spec I decided to look inside.
Someone was locking up with a friendly enough greeting of "We close at 12."
Which wasn't very helpful for those seeking God or just wishing to sightsee.

A great leveller
Aug 2017 • Family
This is a lovely old church in the middle of a bustling town and with some very interesting gravestones. It has peace and tranqility and a lovely place to reflect on life and its meanings. Its just a lovely old place full of memories and culture and its a reminder of how short life can be.....Its a lovely place to see and you will love it.

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

What a revelation ! Saw a great music gig there (David Live - a Bowie tribute act). Well-organised, very informal, great acoustics - will definitely come again !

Clever ashford folk hiding this church and it's lovely square away
Jun 2017 • Friends
Damn the cunning on the native Ashford folk. I have visited many times and had no idea it had a hidden oldy worldy square with a museum and beautiful church. It's cunningly tucked away discreetly behind the high street so none of us out of towers get to see intimate Ashford. Clever but now I have cracked the code like Douglas I will return.

Sunday Afternoon Classical Concert
Feb 2017 • Couples
The building retains its quiet dignity after Sunday service, and on this occasion a string quartet played brilliantly for an hour, using the pleasant setting and marvellous acoustics of the Revelation performance area. Intense concentration on quartets by Haydn and Schumann pleased a small but enthusiastic audience.

Beautiful church
Dec 2016
A beautiful church we visit regularly. The building is very old, but full of memories and peace. It is very quiet inside and I always feel so good at the end of the year when decorations are up to bring a visit.
The tower is very beautiful and you can see it from far.

Good looking Church
Oct 2016 • Solo
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.
