Welcome to St Elizabeth's Ashley

  

Saint Elizabeth’s is in the small village of Ashley in a lovely rural setting. The building is late Victorian and celebrated its 130 years on the feast day of St. Michael and All Angels 29th September 2010.  It has a beautiful stained glass window and carved pews.  Plans are in hand for reordering of the church to include a kitchen, toilet and office with new heating and lighting.  We are considering removing some of the pews to allow for multi-purpose use of the building.

In a recent questionnaire seeking views about our church and possible future developments all the respondents mentioned the existing welcoming and friendly ethos.  St. Elizabeth’s is popular for weddings and christenings.

Ashley village consists of a cricket club, The Greyhound Pub, one village shop, a nursery school, some old cottages, some more modern housing and surrounding farms.  The road past the church leads round to Tatton Park and there is evidence in the area of the influence of the Tatton endowment.  Every May the village organises a Rose Queen Fair in the grounds of the Nursery School.  It is a wonderful gathering of the local community and raises gratefully received funds for the church.

There are church services each Sunday morning at 11 am
and everyone of all ages, local or visitors are very welcome.
