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 the 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 as we work together to build up the Kingdom of God in the world. We invite you to come and worship with us this Sunday.

Upcoming Events and Notices
Join us throughout the summer in our beautiful, air conditioned sanctuary where you can come to step out of the noise of everyday life and listen for God's voice. Through our prayers and liturgy, we follow the tradition of the Anglican way in approaching the throne of grace through Word and Sacrament. We hope that you will join us during this season of rest and refreshment.
Choir practice resume
The choir begins the new season with its first practice on Sept 4th at 7:30 pm. New members are always welcome. All that is required is a desire to sing and have fun!
Welcome Back Sunday
On Sunday, Sept 7th our regular church routine will be back in full swing. Sunday School classes will be resuming, altar servers will return to their usual duties, the choir will be back up front and to celebrate all this, the St. Katherine's ACW will be hosting a complementary lunch in the parish hall following the 10:30 am liturgy. Plan on being with us as we greet this new season with renewed faith and enthusiasm.
On Monday, Sept 15th at 7 pm the "red shirt army" of volunteers is invited to a workshop to continue preparations for our annual Christmas Bazaar. During this meeting we'll be assembling the "Welcome Fliers" for the bazaar visitors. Come and join us.
