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.

An evening full of activities, auctions, competitions, readings, food & food for thought to raise money and save the future of your local church.   



Cake Stall for Comic Relief
After the service on Mothering Sunday 26th March, there
will be a cake stall in aid of Comic Relief. Come and
humour us by buying a 'red nose' cake or two to go
with your coffee after the service! Or, even better, bring
along something you've made yourself too, anything
funny or 'red nosed' particularly welcome!

Appointment of New Vicar
10 May has been set as the date for interviewing
candidates.  The interview panel will be made up of the
Bishop of Woolwich, the archdeacon, Peter Farley-Moore
and two parish reps. The post will be advertised in
2nd/3rd week of March and applications will close at
the end of April.
