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.
