Christian maturity is a worthy goal – but one that is always out of reach! To support and encourage adults on this journey, Ascension offers a number of opportunities to learn and grow together.
Small groups gather the same small group of people together on a regular basis for prayer and learning, some for a set number of weeks and some for years. This allows members to come to trust one another and can lead to very deep community building and spiritual growth. Different groups organize themselves differently and engage in different activities. Current Small Groups at Ascension include:
* Tuesday Bible Study
* Wednesday Women’s Circle
* Thursday Prayer and Study Group
* Art and Spirituality Practice Group
If you are interested in joining or launching a small group, please contact Rhonda.
Ascension also offers small groups which are open to all on a drop-in basis.
Thursday Bible Study and Communion is open to anyone who wishes to come to the church hall on Thursday mornings from 10:00-11:30.
Story at the Rectory is also open to anyone who wishes to come to the “rectory” (Rhonda’s home) on the 1st and 3rd Thursday evenings of the month from 7:30-9:00. The stories vary as people express an interest but have included Bible texts, novels, short fiction, and theology.
Ascension Hikes invites everyone to the beautiful Gatineau hills on autumn Mondays mornings to share in the beauty of creation and good company.
Other seasonal offerings vary by schedule and interest. Please see the Upcoming Events listings for more information.
