In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the people of Ascension congregate online for worship, study, and fellowship.
Social Distance doesn’t mean Spiritual Distance!
On Sunday mornings, worship with us
on Facebook or Zoom
This Sunday at 10am, browse Facebook or Zoom for live-stream morning worship. Don’t be shy about participating in the service: use the comments bar to make a prayer request, exchange the peace, or give us an Amen!
You can follow along with readings, hymns, and liturgy using the Order of Service, which will be available on churchoftheascension.ca or the Connect distribution list.
At the offering, those who wish to can send an e-transfer to email@example.com or visit Canada Helps.

Worship at Home
In addition to the livestream on Sunday mornings, there are a number of resources available to support you in praying and reflecting on Scripture at home. The readings for Sunday can be found here. You can use the service of morning prayer prepared for our Lenten practice or this longer service of morning prayer from the BAS (Anglican prayer book) (it includes the readings). And don’t forget about the Story at Home!

There will be a guest storyteller; an in-home scavenger hunt with show-and-tell; and a simple craft demonstration to follow along with. Photos of your finished project will be shared on Ascension’s Facebook page! Email Rhonda for more information.
