The Church of the Ascension is a diverse and inclusive community of Christian believers that seeks, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to worship God and to bear faithful witness to God's love made known in Christ. We believe we are called to embody truthfulness and reconciling forgiveness, generosity and hope. We are called "to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with God." (Micah 6)
About ANGLICAN CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION
Established in 1877, the Church of the Ascension is an Anglican church located at 253 Echo Drive, Ottawa, Ontario. We are part of the Diocese of Ottawa. Our church community is vibrant and inclusive, where all people are welcome and where children feel at home. Everyone, regardless of church affiliation or age, is invited to the Lord’s table. Our mission statement reflects both who we are and what we believe God is calling us to do.
The present building dates back to 1916. A major renovation in 2008 updated the electrical and sound systems and put a new face on our aging ceiling, making it look new and inviting. Our stained glass windows still provide an inspiring atmosphere.
