Due to the delay in easing of restrictions being enforced by the Victorian State Government , our return to church is deferred until further advice is given.

"COVID Safe" measures will be in place when we recommence services.

We will:

- continue to minister in the parish as we have over previous months; 

- continue to offer whatever support is needed to get through this;

- continue to pray.


First is the Epray Daily App.

Very exciting news as this is what I’ve been using for Morning and Evening Prayer and it’s now free for everyone. This app brings together everything you need including the readings (you can choose NRSV or NIV translations) and is very user-friendly. Please contact me if you need help installing it or help with how to use it. This is the message below from Broughton Publishing:


The Epray Daily App is now available to everyone, and we strongly encourage parishes to make this known to their parishioners as an additional prayer tool for their use during these unsure and unsettling times. It is available for both Apple and Android smart phones and tablets. The new Android version that is coming will no longer ask for an app code, but if it still is, you can bypass this by using the code 9999.


The other resource that I encourage for those of you who seek a quality live-streamed service is from St Paul’s Cathedral, Melbourne. This is a wonderful way for us to connect with our mother cathedral in this diocese. Click Here

Commitment to Child Safety


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. In ministry to children, young people, and vulnerable adults we are committed to providing an environment that is physically, emotionally, and spiritually safe and supportive. This includes a culture of child-safety and of inclusivity for people of cultural and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, people of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background, people with disability, or any other specific group.
