Our vision at Ascension is to know Jesus and make him known.
As a community, we seek to prioritise the worship of God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Everything we do follows from our relationship with him.
Without him we can do nothing. So we seek to grow in our love of God, both individually and as a community.
We commit to seeking the presence of God, we prioritise prayer, and we expect that God acts in our world and speaks to us.
As we encounter Jesus, we know that, again and again, he calls us afresh to go out into our community.
… and making him known
We believe that our identity as part of God’s worldwide church is be a missionary community.
We want to be a community that is completely committed to joining with God in transforming, reconciling and restoring his world. God is a missionary God, he is already at work in our communities, and we seek to join him in this work.
We strive to be a community that passionately, confidently and courageously shares our faith.
We seek to be a community that transforms our world.
What does this mean in practice?
At the moment, we are running Windows Café, opening our buildings for community use and going into local schools. We value healing prayer ministry.
We’re working with Christians in Townhill to run family events in the Townhill Community Centre.
We participate with other local churches in a range of other activities at key times of year like Christmas and Easter.
