Church of the Ascension


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.

  Church is not just about the bricks and the windows – or even about Sundays – but it is a community that seeks to live out one simple aim – to love God and to love our neighbour.

Why don't you join us?





Help our Sunday School!
We have been advertising for some considerable time
now for volunteers to help with Sunday School but with
no response. We have also recently lost another helper
who has moved out of the area. As you all know, Sunday
School is a very important part of church life and is well
attended and thriving. You do not need previous experience
and might only be asked to help once or twice a term,
but it is necessary to have Enhanced DBS clearance. This
is paid for by the Diocese. There is a Job Description at
the back of church and if there are any questions Debs or
Georgina would be pleased to help. We also offer some
background training. Please consider helping: it can be both rewarding and fun. Thank you
