I have come that they may have life, and have it in abundance.John 10:10
Our support of others is only possible through the incredible generosity of those who give financially, but also of their time, talents and resources.
We make use of our historic buildings not only for worship but also for building up and sustaining the life of our local communities, and those in particular need.
SUPPORTING OUR WORK IN THE PARISH AND LOCAL COMMUNITY
The Coronavirus emergency has resulted in a drastic fall in our income, mostly from the closure of our halls and because we can’t take collections at services, but other sources of income are also severely curtailed. We understand that many are finding it very hard to cope financially at present, but if you are able to support the continuing work of the Parish of the Ascension, or one of its parish churches, please click a button below. For further help with giving, please contact our Treasurer for details. The Parish of the Ascension is a registered charity no. 1172822

You can also boost our funds when you shop online, at no extra cost to yourself, through our GIVE AS YOU LIVE account.
