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. Unfortunately, to help stop the spread of Covid-19, our building is currently closed, which means all our normal services, events and groups are suspended. However, we are using virtual ways to stay in touch with our community. Find out more on our Church at Home page
