Christmas Share

The deadline for donations to Christmas Share has been extended by a week, to Sunday, Dec. 4.

The Christmas Share program at St. Paul’s Social Services (at the cathedral) helps those in need have a Merry Christmas by providing them with gift cards so they have the dignity of buying the food and gifts they wish for. Last year Ascension members generously donated $900 to Christmas Share — more than double what had been given for several previous years. Let’s see if we can do it again! The deadline for donations is Sunday, Nov. 27 Dec. 4. You can donate through your collection envelope by writing “Christmas Share” on the Special Offering line, by e-transfer to office@ascensionlondon.com, or by mailing a cheque to Church of the Ascension, 2060 Dundas St., N5V 1R2. Thank you for your ongoing support for this special program.

Sale of Land for Apartments

Artist’s rendering of building planned for the land behind Ascension

In July 2019, Church of the Ascension entered into an agreement with a developer group to sell the back of the church property for an apartment building — much needed in the Argyle area. The agreement is conditional on approval from the City of London. As of mid-October 2022, these are the next steps planned by the buyer:

  • October 19: City of London urban design panel review of project.
  • Nov. 24, 6-8 p.m.: Informal open house for area residents in Ascension’s Parish Hall, including a short presentation by the planner, plans for the proposed building and site, and plans for the access road from Dundas Street along the east side of the church. Some city staff are expected to attend.
  • Early in the new year: City staff expected to schedule the proposed project and rezoning with City Council’s planning committee.
  • February: Planning committee presents the project to Council with a recommendation.

For details of the project, please go to this City of London site: https://london.ca/business-development/planning-development-applications/planning-applications/2060-dundas-street

Important Petition

The City of London has sent a bylaw infraction notice to First Baptist Church on the Park because it is hosting Ark Aid Street Mission while Ark Aid’s building is being renovated. According to the city, working in partnership like this to assist the hungry and homeless is not covered by “place of worship”. If this stands, it could impact many churches as they work with other organizations to serve their communities. Please sign the online petition started by Rev. Canon Kevin George of St. Aidan’s to support First Baptist and Ark Aid and let the city know how you feel about this. This is the link to the petition: https://bit.ly/3fn3ahG
