Welcome to the Anglican
Church of the Ascension,
ALL ARE WELCOME
Just a few reminders to keep us COVID-safe while we are together in church.
We can now welcome 88 people into church.
It’s important to keep the (well known) 1.5 metre distance between each other at all times.
Masks are required at all times, unless you are leading a part of the service or have a medical exemption and when receiving communion.
The peace will be non-contact (no elbow bumping!)
Communion wafers have been prepared earlier with a drop of wine and will be consecrated during the service.We will gather around the sanctuary as usual to receive communion but with the necessary space between each other.
Hand sanitiser is readily available and needs be used on entry to the church every time.
After our service we will be serving morning tea in the HALL. Please join us, hand sanitiser will be available, and there are some chairs available to use. Masks should be worn in the hall, except when eating and drinking.
Thank you for your understanding as we practise these COVID safe measures.
At the Church of the Ascension, we follow Christ in being a caring church welcoming of all, extending his love and invitation of new life. Here we worship God in the Eucharist with all the rich liturgy and symbolism that the tradition of the Anglican Church offers.
We believe that the Christian tradition has profound things to offer people who are searching. We are not a dogmatic church or a church which forcefully tells people what to believe. We take seriously the desire of people to search, to question, and to enquire. As Anglicans, we have a strong commitment to explore and to wrestle through some of the thorny issues facing society. You will not be asked to leave your intellect in the church carpark.
We strive to be an open-minded and open-hearted church in an age where people are searching for meaning and belonging in the busy, materialistic, and often impersonal world in which we live. Situated on the corner of Witchwood Crescent and Blackburn Road, East Burwood - the Parish of the Ascension draws people from the East Burwood, Mt Waverley, Glen Waverley, Blackburn, and other surrounding areas.
