Online Church

The building is closed but the church is open. Sadly, because of the measures need to control the Coronavirus outbreak all church services in the church building are suspended until further notice.

However, church was never really about the buildings. Church is about relationship; first of all it is about our relationship with God, bringing our thanks and praise to God and meeting with Him in worship; and then church is also about our relationships with each other. While the ‘social distancing’ measures are in place we mustn’t meet physically, but we are recognising that what is being called ‘social distancing’ is only about physical distancing and for those who have online access we can still meet through our computer screens. Ascension is using the Zoom Video Conferencing for online Virtual Church Events. Please see below for information about downloading Zoom. Once you have Zoom installed click the links for the events below at the right time and it should get you connected.

We have two virtual services online each week: We have a Sunday Morning Virtual Service at 10.00 am on Sundays and a Wednesday Morning Virtual Morning Prayer at 1o.30 a.m on Wednesdays

We have two online social fellowship events each week: There is a Virtual Coffee Morning at 10.30 am on Tuesdays and a Virtual Afternoon Tea at 3.30 pm on Thursdays.
