Welcome to Church of the Ascension

Welcome to Church of the Ascension’s home on the internet.  We are a growing, vibrant, traditional faith community of all ages that gathers together each week to worship God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in the rich spiritual tapestry of the Anglican tradition.  Empowered by the love of God we endeavour to be a community that fosters a sense of hope, meaning and joy in the lives of modern people.  In listening to God’s Word and partaking in the Sacraments of the Christian faith we hope to be drawn into an ever deepening relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ and work together to build up the Kingdom of God.  We invite you to come and worship with us this Sunday.
