Church of the Ascension (Anglican) was formed in 2001 from the amalgamation of four smaller Anglican churches in the east end of the London, Ontario — a process that took six years (1996-2002) to complete.
The following booklet — Good News ~ for a Change — was written to record the recollections and experiences of church members over those years,
with the hope that other churches that might embark on a similar path
could learn from our successes and mistakes.

Note: Church of Ascension began its life as East London Anglican Ministries and was known by that name until 2011. The story reflects the original name of the church.
In 2012, on the 10th anniversary in our new church home, we created this candle mixing coloured sands poured by representatives from the four founding church and those who had joined the church since then.
