Welcome to the Anglican
Church of the Ascension,
ALL ARE WELCOME
Effective 23 March, public services of worship have been suspended until further notice.
As you are now aware, we have shifted into an unprecedented time, in general and in the history of the parish of the Church of the Ascension. Never before have we had to suspend public worship services for a time in order to keep one another safe. Click here to read how we are continuing to BE the church and shine in the light of Christ in a broken, fearful and hurting world. We pray that you will stay safe, strong and connected during this time. Click here for the Latest Update
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 a welcoming 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 draws people from the East Burwood, Mt Waverley, Glen Waverley, Blackburn, and other surrounding areas.
