Ashview Nursing Home lies on the Ware Road between the church and the village centre.

Most months, the Rector brings Holy Communion for the residents who wish to attend (and their families if they are visiting at the time). The short service includes hymns accompanied by the Rector’s guitar, prayers (including the Lord’s Prayer and prayer for the home, its staff, residents and their friends and families) and a short reading from the Bible with a reflection about the hope we have in Christ Jesus.

The service follows the Church of England pattern but is very informal, allowing space for contributions and comments from staff, residents and family members. It lasts about half an hour and closes with a formal blessing and some informal chat.
