At Ascension, we believe that to grow as a disciple you need to be part of a community, and meeting regularly with other Christians is an important part of building up your faith.

Alongside worshipping God as a larger community on Sundays, we encourage you to be part of a small group of some sort. At these groups, you’ll have the chance to have honest conversations about faith, getting to know people from your local community, pray together, read the bible and learn more about God.

What kind of groups are there?

Our groups vary in size, and most meet in the houses of group members. All are friendly and welcoming, and there’s bound to be one to suit you. If you need advice on which group to choose, please contact Will, who oversees our small groups.

Mondays, in Windows Café, 2.30pm– 4pm.  Nehemiah: The courage to face opposition.  This series looks at how Nehemiah responded to the opposition he and the Israelites experienced as they started to rebuild as a nation. Our conflicts may be less momentous but we can still learn from him. Contact Helen Pain for more information .
