Hello Everyone!! I hope you are all well and enjoying all this season has to bring!  In our preaching series on Sundays, we are taking a brief look at stewardship, particularly focussing on the use of money and finances.  In this series we are asking questions such as, how do we best use our money for God’s glory and for […]

Dear Friends, I have been reflecting, over the last year, about our church community here at Ascension. I really love our community. I love that God shows up again and again; I love that we see people come to a new relationship with Jesus; I love that we have different ages all together in one community; I love that that […]
