The Church of the Ascension has been the spiritual home of the people of Torrisholme for over 100 years. The Parish Church strives to be a welcoming community to all who come seeking the grace of God. The church is catholic in tradition and style of worship and the regular celebration of the Eucharist is at the heart of all we do, culminating in the Sung Eucharist at 11am on a Sunday. We have a thriving Junior Church which meets weekly during term time, from 11am, and once a month an All Age Eucharist is celebrated aimed at people of every age young and old alike. The liturgical seasons are marked with due solemnity and the Eucharist celebrated on all feast days.
Our church halls are host to a wide range of community as well as parish events and groups, including the uniformed organisations, toddler groups, health and fitness classes, craft and music societies and much more.
'Where love is, God is there also' wrote Leo Tolstoy. Our aim is to be a worshiping and welcoming community founded on the greatest command of all, to love. Love God above all things and our neighbour as ourselves. A warm welcome awaits you.
