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.

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.

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.

A beautiful Parish Church, I attended Christmas and Rememberance Sunday services at St Mary as a 1st Ruckinge Girl Guide. I always remember how beautiful the church was decorated and how many people packed into the church.

Others have said how attractive the church is, inside and out. It is. And harmonises perfectly with the other smaller buildings in the compact close. It is free of the noises and most of the smells of the 2010. Like other old churches it has strike a balance between catering for its parishoners - or at any rate those who... More

The location of this church is odd as it is located in the middle of a busy town centre but once you do see it, it's like everything else around you just fades out. This vision of heaven is what makes Ashford Town Centre stick out from the rest.

I love looking around historic churches and admiring the architecture and stained glass windows. This is a very pretty church and well-worth having a wander around. Volunteers are also around and very knowledgeable about the origins of the church.

Great place to watch a gig. You can have a drink of wine beer or a coffee. It is a church so its quite cold inside. Top night watching the Villagers and Aiden Knight

What have they done to this beautiful church, it's an old church and as such should of been left as a piece of history. Removing the pews has not only reduced the number of seats but taken the heart out the building. I spent many happy times here but could of cried when I walked in
