    Our Sunday services are live this autumn


Ascension is a growing outward looking Anglican Church in Bitterne Park Southampton. We want to know Jesus and make him known in our local community. We'd like to get to know you too. In light of COVID-19, we are following government guidance closely to help keep everyone as safe as possible. Although things may look a little different in our services, we'd still love you to join us on a Sunday morning if you are able to. Find out more about returning to worship under our Worship Services tab.
