Achurch (formerly Asenciran sometimes Thorpe Achurch) is a village in Northamptonshire, England. It was called Asechirce in the Domesday Book.

It is part of the civil parish of Lilford-cum-Wigsthorpe and Thorpe Achurch and the district of East Northamptonshire. It has lent its name to people's surnames who are believed to have originated from the village.

Robert Browne who had previously founded the Brownists, a forerunner of Congregationalism, was rector here 1591 - 1631.

The parish includes the Grade 1 listed home of Lilford Hall.
