Welcome

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.

What do we do?
Worship services

​We meet together throughout the week to worship God.

Sunday 9:00am – A more traditional reflective communion service.

Sunday 10:30 am – An informal worship service.

Wednesday 9:30am – A spoken reflective service of Holy Communion.

Small groups

It’s not just about Sunday worship.

We think regularly meeting together during the week in small groups to pray, study the bible and socialise together is an important part of being a Christian.

 

 

Prayer

Spending time with God in prayer is a big  part of our life as followers of Jesus.

Find out about how we pray and how we can pray for you.
