Church of the Ascension
Blackheath

 
 

We are a church where people who want to get involved can. We believe our faith leads us to get involved with the community around us and with issues in the wider world. This is why you will see a number of people heavily involved on the two large council estates in our parish – Heathside and Lethbridge in Lewisham. And is why you will see us asking for donations to support a wide variety of projects and organisations overseas.

             
 

 

 

                   

We are also part of a ‘team’ – where we have joined forces with two other churches in Deptford to focus on how best we can serve the local areas. So now we are officially linked with Holy Trinity on Bennett Grove. We have an historical building, an ancient faith but we are not stuck in the past. We like to think of ourselves as outward looking and inclusive and our faith draws upon centuries of wisdom and practice.
 

An evening full of activities, auctions, competitions, readings, food & food for thought to raise money and save the future of your local church.

A Call for Volunteers
We would welcome practical help to provide activities and
 entertainment for our Appeal evening On 25th November.
Could you organise an auction, mount a challenge
(eg name 18 xxxxx, along the lines of the 50 things to do in
a pew, our exercise last week), teach a skill? We want
to involve as many people as possible - neighbours,
friends, as well as members of the congregation - to make
the evening and the appeal a success.
