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?






Sunday School Helper
We are in need of some more helpers for Sunday school. It
can be great fun helping the children and you would only
need to help once or twice a term. There is a Job Description
on the notice board at the back of the church. Enhanced DBS clearance is required before starting but this is organised and
paid for by the Diocese. Please speak to Debs or Georgina
if you would like to know more.


Annual Meeting
Our Annual Parish Meeting is on 27th April at 12.00 noon.
This is the meeting where we review the past year and plan
for the future and every member of the church has the right to contribute to the discussion. In preparation for the Meeting
the Electoral Roll is displayed at the back of the church
according to the regulations.


Ascension Youth Group
We have recently launched the Ascension Youth

Group for young people in school years 5, 6, 7 & 8. 

Please email Trevor for more information.
