Ministries and programs are the heart of Church of the Asension. Every Sunday, we bring the world into our church; every day our mission — our Great Commission — is to take the church into the world.

Here’s a two-minute feature on a few of the recent things we have done in the community under the name of “Pick a Partner”:

Because of our ministries and programs, children in London and in other countries who live in poverty receive Christmas presents, people receive a good breakfast and fellowship each month, women and children at the nearby shelter for abused women have slept under warm quilts and taken a break at a picnic table, people recovering from illnesses have been wrapped in shawls made with skilled hands and prayerful words. God is working in us and through us, doing more than we could possibly ask or imagine. No gift is too small, no gesture too meaningless, no effort wasted.

We group our ministries and programs in five categories: Care & Compassion, Building Community, Outreach, Teaching & Learning, and Special Projects & Tasks. Click on those headings below to learn more about the ministries and programs in each category. You will find some of these ministries and program have their own pages within this website, which you can reach from the page for each category.
